Graduate Assistant Application Steps

There are two (2) steps to the CSAL application process when applying for CSAL graduate assistantships:
1. Apply for admission to the College of Education 
2. Once you have been successfully admitted you will be invited to apply for any vacant positions. The application process will be open from November 15, 2020 to January 15, 2021. 

The graduate assistantship application deadline has been extended to Friday, January 22, 2021.

Note: If you would like full consideration for an assistantship we recommend application submission to the College of Education no later than December 15.

CSAL Graduate Assistantship Requirements:
Each Graduate Assistantship requires a baccalaureate degree and admission to the College of Education M.Ed. program. Students must pursue the M.Ed. in Higher Education degree with an emphasis in College Student Affairs Leadership (CSAL). Graduate assistants work 20 hours per week from the beginning of August through May.

Award Process
While the College of Education coordinates the application process, all decisions to offer Graduate Assistantships are made by the staff in each office that sponsors an assistantship.

The stipend for Graduate Assistantships varies depending on the position, the office in which the position is offered, and the length of time the position lasts; details pertaining to stipends and tuition waivers are subject to change.
