Applicants submit application to Financial Aid who will forward all applications to the graduate program division chair for his/her selection for each semester. The selected student is subject to a criminal background check.
Graduate assistants may receive the assistantship a maximum of two semesters.
Graduate Assistantship Duties
Assistantship positions are designed to provide the student with a meaningful work experience in the field of study while enabling and/or supporting a division project or initiative. Duties and responsibilities are described in assistantship position descriptions posted each semester.
Graduate Assistant Supervision
The division chair or a designated faculty member designated is responsible for supervising the graduate assistant.
Supervision is aided by required submission of a task list and work hours log given to the supervisor by the end of each month of the semester.
The supervisor will complete a mid-term evaluation to ensure that the graduate assistant is meeting the assignment objectives, as well as an end-of-semester evaluation providing summative documentation of the work accomplished, its quality, and timeliness.
