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 and Community Innovation
2. Once you have been successfully admitted you will be invited to apply for any vacant positions. You do not need to submit additional materials to apply for assistantships. The resume and statement you submitted with your application will be shared with assistantship sites. 

CSAL Graduate Assistantship Requirements:
Each Graduate Assistantship requires a baccalaureate degree and admission to the College of Education and Community Innovation 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 10-20 hours per week during the academic year. 

Award Process
While the College of Education and Community Innovation 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.
