The College of Business offers graduate students assistantship positions that assist professors in research or course administration, or provides support in the COB computer lab. Returning graduate assistants who have received favorable evaluations are given first consideration for assistantship awards and remaining graduate assistantships are awarded based on GMAT score and academic achievement. Awards given are based on available funding and need and vary from semester to semester. All students who apply for a graduate assistantship may not receive one. Early application is recommended.
Graduate assistantships (GA) are typically awarded in 10 to 20 hour increments. Students must be enrolled as full-time (9 semester hours/3 classes), with at least one face-to-face class during a fall or spring semester to be eligible for a GA. Students do not have to be enrolled during summer sessions to be eligible for a GA. Students must be in good academic standing to be eligible for a GA. Students on probation or those who have not made satisfactory progress toward satisfying their program requirements (i.e., dropping one or more classes each term) will not be considered for a GA. Students must receive satisfactory performance evaluations to be considered for a GA in a following semester. GAs will be terminated for non-performance of job duties.
Students must submit a separate application for each term (fall, spring, 1st summer session, 2nd summer session) that they wish to be considered for a graduate assistantship. In addition, students must apply each term even if they currently have a graduate assistantship. A current resume is required to be uploaded with the online application. The awarding of assistantships is typically done in phases and students will be notified via email if/when they are awarded a graduate assistantship. All students who apply for a graduate assistantship may not receive one. Early application is recommended.
Early applications are encouraged as positions will be filled as they become available. For full consideration, applications must be received by the following deadlines. In order to complete an application, a student must be accepted and registered for graduate business courses.
