Graduate Assistantships provide a stipend and tuition remission as well as valuable academic and professional experience. A limited number of Graduate Assistantships are available each year, contingent on funding provided by the Graduate School and the College of Arts and Sciences.
Students indicate their interest in Graduate Assistantships as part of the process of applying for admission to the Graduate School. By checking the appropriate field on their application, students ensure that their name and qualifications will be forwarded to the English Graduate Coordinator, who reviews candidates and contacts them for interviews.
In order to be eligible to apply for a Graduate Assistantship, students must hold a GPA of 3.0 or higher, must be fully accepted to the English graduate program (i.e., not accepted on a provisional basis), and may not be enrolled in the Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Certification program.
