Position Requirements

College of Education Graduate Assistant opportunities are one-year appointments for the entire Academic Year listed for the posting.

Applicants who cannot work the entire Academic Year are not eligible for these College of Education positions and are encouraged to seek other college and university job opportunities.


The graduate assistant (GA) is an important part of the College of Education.

Graduate assistantships are opportunities for graduate students (Master's and Doctoral) to work closely with faculty members, to support on-going research efforts and to engage in on-going conversations regarding educational issues and research with faculty and other student colleagues.

Because graduate assistants generally work with and for several faculty members at once; they can expect broad-based exposure to the day-to-day workings of the College of Education within the context of university life.

Appointments

Graduate Assistant applicants are interviewed and appointed directly by each individual hiring area in the College of Education. A complete list of hiring units is outlined below under the application section. The dates for applications are also listed in the application section below. The number of appointments available for any given school year varies and is contingent upon funding. Any applicants hired and seeking continued employment in this role beyond the one academic year appointment must reapply each subsequent year they are eligible.

Full-time Graduate Assistant appointments require 600 hours of on-campus, in-office work Fall through Spring quarters of the academic year following the application window (including break periods). Part-time Graduate Assistant appointments require 300 hours of on-campus, in-office work Fall through Spring quarters of the academic year following the application window (including break periods). All Full-time and Part-time  hours are completed on-site during College of Education regular operating hours M-F between the hours of 9am-5pm.
