Apply for a Graduate Assistantship

How does half off your tuition sound?

Once students have been accepted into a graduate program, they can apply to be hired for Graduate Work Program positions. Positions within this program include: Research Assistantships, Teaching Assistantships and Administrative Award positions that are located within different departments across campus.

Students who are hired for positions receive a 50 percent tuition scholarship each term and a stipend for working 15-20 hours per week.

Our Graduate Work Program website has the most updated information regarding this program and allows you to submit your application for this program. General hiring for positions begins in late May of every year for the following Academic Year. Students can be hired any term a position is open, so hiring does occur in all three academic terms. Once your application is submitted, it will be posted in our hiring database for supervisors to review.
