Graduate Assistantships are designed to allow graduate students to become fully immersed in their graduate education. Graduate Assistantships provide a stipend plus cover the cost of tuition in exchange for on-campus employment in an area related to their program of study.
Normally assistantships require 20 hours of work on campus and provide for 9 hours of graduate tuition per semeser and a stipend of $3,500 per semester.
Unless your assistantship is funded by an outside source (e.g., a grant), graduate assistants are generally not eligible for other scholarships from the Graduate School or MWSU Foundation. Graduate assistants are generally not allowed to have off-campus employment (except for part-time consulting directly related to their area of study).
Specific requirements that differ from those above may be outlined in your appointment letter.
Faculty requesting a Graduate Assistant should review the Graduate Assistant Allocation Procedure.
