Graduate Assistantships

Graduate assistantships are part-time jobs in campus departments.  The jobs provide both financial support and valuable experience to graduate students.  Graduate students support faculty/staff in research, special projects, and with administrative duties, in exchange for a partial tuition waiver applicable to that semester.
