Graduate Teaching Assistantships

Graduate Assistantships are available which consist of

  • a tuition waiver for 10 credits per semester for two years and
  • an annual stipend.

These are competitive assistantships with a deadline for completed applications being February 1. As soon as the application is complete, you will be considered in the pool for assistantship.

Assistantship details

  • The assistantship is a .5 position (the remaining .5 is your own academic load), which qualifies you for university health insurance at special rates.

  • The job requires approximately 20 hours of work each week (which includes time for instructional preparation).

  • In addition to a salary of approximately $12,000, you will receive a tuition waiver for 10 credit hours during both the fall and spring semesters. (Summer courses are not included).

  • Campus privilege fees will be assessed per credit hour and range from a total of $500 to $850 per semester.

  • The assistantship is automatically renewed for a second year if your academic and work performance is satisfactory.
