Graduate Assistantships

Each year the College of Business and Innovation (COBI) offers Graduate Assistantships to Graduate students with a history of academic excellence. We are only able to offer Graduate Assistantship (GA) awards to a very small percentage of applicants, so being selected is a great privilege.

Typically, Graduate Assistants will work with a faculty member in one of the COBI departments, assisting with research, class preparation, and special assignments. Some Graduate Assistants will also be placed in the Office of Student Retention and Academic Success, COBI Graduate Programs Office, COBI College Computing Office, and the Business Career Programs Office.

A full GA includes tuition waiver for up to 9 credit hours each Fall and Spring, 20 hours of work per week on campus, and a stipend. A half GA includes tuition waiver for up to 6 credit hours each Fall and Spring, 10 hours of work per week on campus, and a stipend. Most GA awards do not cover Summer semesters. All GA awards include approval to purchase faculty/staff parking permits.

The deadline to apply is March 1st and October 1st each year. The minimum requirements to be considered for a GA award are an undergraduate GPA of 3.2 or higher, and a GMAT score of 500 or higher. Scoring well on the GMAT is the best way to increase the likelihood that you will be selected for a GA award.

You must do the following by the respective deadline to be considered for an award:

  • Submit all program application materials to the College of Graduate Studies
  • Submit a complete Assistantship Application to the COBI Graduate Programs Office.
  • Submit your resume to COBI Graduate Programs Office

Graduate Assistantship awards will be announced in May and December respectively. We will accept applications after the deadline dates, however priority is given to applications received by the deadline dates posted.

For more information about types of assistantships, requirements to maintain assistantship, benefits, and additional employment outside of assistantships please view the College of Graduate Studies website.
