What is a Graduate Assistant (GA)?
A Graduate Assistant is a graduate student holding regular admission to a degree program who maintains a 3.0 GPA and works as a Teaching Assistant, Research Assistant, Administrative Assistant or Intern for an Academic or Administrative department within the University.  Graduate Assistants work a specified number of hours per week (typically 20 hours), maintain a minimum course load (typically 12 hours/semester), and fulfill specific job requirements as set forth in their GA contract and by their supervisor. As a GA, most students receive a tuition remission/waiver (typically full-time tuition), a stipend or paycheck and an amazing work experience.
