Graduate Assistantship Positions
Applications for fall 2021 are now closed.
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. 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. Visit How to Apply to learn more about the application process for assistantships and for the College Student Personnel program.
For all graduate assistantship applications, you need a resume, cover letter, list of professional references, and a personal statement (optional). Candidates may apply for up to seven assistantships.
To learn more about the types of graduate assistantship opportunities available through this program, review the examples below. Not all positions are open for applicants each academic year.
Other employment opportunities are available on Ohio University Jobs.
