Eligibility Requirements for Graduate Assistantships
You may be hired as a graduate assistant if you are:
Admitted by the Graduate School to a degree-granting program on a regular or conditional basis
In good academic standing
Enrolled in nine credit hours for the fall and spring, or in six credit hours for the summer (as of the first day of class)
Please note: if you're a graduate assistant in the spring and remain a degree-seeking student, you don't have to enroll in the following summer term in order to maintain your assistantship. You must submit an underload petition.
If you're an international student on a visa, you must enroll for a minimum of nine hours during the fall and spring semesters.
