iGA | International Graduate Assistants

Several of our International Students work Graduate Assistant (GA) positions at GVSU--we're so proud of them! Watch these iGA videos features to hear some of these students' successes in life and at GVSU so far. 

What is a GA, you might be wondering? GAs are part-time on-campus jobs that provide graduate students with professional experiences while compensating them by covering all or half of their tuition.
