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.­
