Graduate Assistant Positions

This website is dedicated to those students who are pursuing a graduate assistantship through the Division of Student Affairs or through our partners listed below.­

Assistantships are on-campus positions that are designed to supplement your classroom experience with practical experience. The Division of Student Affairs offers many assistantship opportunities, and, given the partnership with The Gladys W. and David H. Patton College of Education, first consideration goes to those students applying for admission to the College Student Personnel program. The graduate assistantship application process and the academic admissions process are separate but concurrent processes.­

Listed below are the graduate assistantship positions for the 2014-2015 academic year.­ Please check back for an updated list for the 2015-2016 academic year in December.

Candidates may apply for up to 4 graduate assistantships through this process. To apply, click on a position description to find the link to the online application.

*Applications for graduate assistantships have now closed for 2014.* Applicants selected to interview for a graduate assistantship will be asked to attend Interview Weekend at Ohio University, Athens Campus from February 21-22. Candidates who are selected for graduate assistantships will be notified of this after March 1.­
