Applying for a Graduate Assistantship

Section IV. Item 2.

Application for Graduate Assistantship

A prospective assistant is to submit a two-sided application form (see the samples that follow) to the department or other unit in which the appointment is desired. Application forms are available from the Human Resource Services website or the Graduate School's website.

A student may apply for an assistantship to more than one place, but holding two appointments simultaneously is only possible as described in Policies Pertaining to Graduate Assistantships (Section IV, Item 1. number 4).

Hiring offices may require information from applicants that is in addition to that specified on the application form, and additional selection processes (e.g., personal interviews) may be used.
