Application process

Application process

Graduate assistantship positions for the 2024-2025 academic year are posted and the application is open.
Applications will be reviewed, on-campus or Zoom interviews are held, and invitations extended each spring. 

The application process is as follows:

  • Complete the enrollment application process for the Graduate Program in Higher Education Leadership. You must be accepted into one of the degrees in the Graduate Program in Higher Education Leadership (Master of Arts in Higher Education Leadership or the Master of Arts in Intercollegiate Athletic Leadership) to be considered as a candidate. Please note on your essay that you will be applying for a Graduate Assistantship. It is highly recommended that Graduate Assistants begin with the Summer Intensive course (on campus) July 22- July 26, 2024. This would be a Summer start on your application.
  • You may submit your graduate assistant application while your higher education leadership application is being completed. 
  • Complete the graduate assistantship application after reviewing descriptions and requirements for each graduate assistantship position. These are found in "Positions available".

Interview Day(s) (details subject to change).

  • Graduate Assistant on-campus recruitment days are held in March. After this time, positions will be opened until filled.
    • Those unable to come to campus for in-person interviews will have Zoom interviews.
