Graduate Assistantships

Graduate assistantships provide degree-seeking students an opportunity to engage in important mentored research, teaching or service while enrolled full-time. Typically, graduate assistants perform assigned duties in their home department, but assistantships may be available in administrative units on campus, too.

To be eligible for an assistantship, you must complete and submit an application to the department in which you seek an assistantship. Do not submit your application to the Graduate School.

Learn more about graduate assistantship employment by reading the Academic Policies and Procedures Manual or visiting NIU's Human Resource Services website.
