Student Affairs Graduate Assistant Recruitment Day

Welcome to the Division of Student Affairs Graduate Assistant Recruitment Website. Graduate Assistants are an integral part of our division as they perform multiple critical functions that are core to our mission and purpose.

To participate in The Division of Student Affairs Graduate Assistant Interview Day candidates must register prior to the event. Priority registration is January 1, 2020 to give sufficient time for employers to review applications.  We encourage candidates to apply even after the priority deadline as there may still be opportunities to interview for positions at or after the division interview day.

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.
