Job Descriptions

Graduate assistants (GA) provide educationally beneficial assistance to the departments which award the assistantships. By policy, graduate assistantship duties should be relevant to students' major field of study and shall be of academic value. The graduate assistant's supervisor should go over the job description with the student so that the GA is aware of what is expected by the department and university.

Students are eligible for the financial assistance provided by a graduate assistantship for a maximum of two years (24 months) applicable to the completion of one graduate degree. Once a student has completed a graduate degree, whether that program of study required one year or two, the student is no longer eligible for a graduate assistantship.

In the John H. Lounsbury College of Education we have four types of graduate assistantships:

  • General Graduate Assistantships
  • MAT-Middle Grades & Secondary Education Graduate Assistantships
  • MAT-Special Education Graduate Assistantships
  • Georgia College Early College Graduate Assistantships
