The graduate program in Outdoor Education Administration has a strong history of successfully placing interested incoming students in graduate assistantships. Most students in graduate assistantship positions receive an in-state or out-of state tuition waiver (provided they maintain a full graduate course load) and a modest stipend. Graduate assistantships may be renewable for up to four semesters.
Students interested in applying for graduate assistantships must be approved for regular admission according to the criteria set forth by Graduate Admissions and the Department of Outdoor Education. Students admitted conditionally are not normally eligible for a graduate assistantship in the first semester of study and there is not guarantee that a graduate assistantship will be available in the second semester.
The graduate assistantship application form is available on the graduate admission page. University policy indicates that graduate students be placed in graduate assistantships that are pertinent to the field of graduate studies. Outdoor Education Administration students may be eligible for graduate assistantships in the Department of Education, as well as other departments such as Academic Outreach, Academic Engagement, Instructional Technology, or the Leadership Certificate program based on their undergraduate major or prior experience.
Coordinator of Graduate Studies in the Department of Outdoor Education normally advises potential students about the availability of graduate assistantships during the interview process. For information about graduate assistantships in the Department of Outdoor Education and application procedures see the Graduate Student Handbook.
