Graduate Assistantships

Students must have either a graduate assistant (GA) position or a full-time position in student affairs to be admitted into the SAHE program.  There is a strong possibility that candidates admitted into the program will be employed as a graduate assistant within the division of student affairs. Prospective students' applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis. Earlier submission enhances an applicant's opportunities to obtain a graduate assistantship position. Assistantships lower educational costs, provide students additional work experience, and allow students to pursue the program on a full-time basis. (Those individuals who are employed on campus will not be eligible for graduate assistantships.)  Acquiring a GA position will help you gain valuable functional area work experiences before you enter the full-time job market during your last semester. Graduate students with emerging practical experience gain additional experiences through practicums completed in SAE 747.

Graduate assistantships provide a wavier for tuition and fees, a monthly stipend, and discounts at the bookstore. Residence hall graduate assistants are paid a slightly higher rate, in addition to receiving housing and a meal plan. Your application to the program will allow you to list three preference areas where you wish to gain experience.

**Students should be aware that the application process for a graduate assistantship is separate from the application for program enrollment.  The SAHE program seeks to partner with you to obtain a GA position through our Graduate Recruitment Weekend (GRW)
