Paying for College

Graduate Assistantships

Hiring Process 


Available assistantships are advertised via Handshake, the University Career Center's job posting database. Applications will be available via Handshake as well as the college.

Faculty will review the applications we have on file and select candidates for interviews. After a calendar year, we remove applications from the pool.

Awards


The criteria for awarding the Graduate Assistantship will be based on the needs and requirements of the managing faculty or staff member. Financial need is not a criterion for selection of graduate assistants.

Tuition Waiver


Graduate assistants will receive a fee waiver for the academic year in which they are awarded the assistantship. A monthly stipend is also provided. Contact our college's business manager, Kevin Watson, at (937) 775-2635 to learn the current amount.

Application Information 


Applicants are required to submit a Graduate Assistantship Application (PDF) as well as two Letters of Recommendation forms completed by a faculty member and/or a former employer, which can attest to the applicant's abilities as both a student as well as an employee. Resumes, written letters of recommendation, and any other information which would attest to the applicant's ability to succeed as both a Graduate student as well as a Graduate Assistant may be included in the file, but are not required.
