Graduate Assistantships

 Screening of graduate applications desiring departmental financial assistance will begin on March 15th of each year; therefore, deadline is March 14th.

  • Initial screening will be based on student GRE scores and cumulative grade point average.

  • We have a limited number of assistantships; therefore, it is a very competitive process.  The sooner you have your application approved and a mentor serving as your advocate for funding, the better.

  • Typical assistantships are for ¼ time or ½ time, which equates to 10 and 20 hours of departmental work per week, respectively.

  •  Specific wages, benefits, and responsibilities will be stated in student’s letter of offer.
