Graduate Assistantships

Graduate Assistants in the Libraries are required to work either 20 hours for half-time or 10 hours for quarter-time positions. Evening or weekend hours may be a part of the schedule. The Libraries are flexible in accommodating class schedules. Each assistantship includes a monthly stipend and full tuition waiver.

Assistantships are twelve-month appointments with the option of renewal based on performance review. Students appointed to such “12 month or other” appointments receive equal monthly payments for the months of the appointments and have assistantship responsibilities for the full period of the appointment.
