Graduate Assistantships

However, the assistantship or appointment will not be eligible for tuition remission (waiver of tuition or academic fees). 

Students should be aware of the structure and rigor of the program, as well as significant cocurricular, experiential learning, and career development opportunities, before considering on-campus employment opportunities like graduate assistantships.
