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:

  • Assistantships at the Montessori Academy at the Early Learning Center 
  • General Graduate Assistantships (e.g. Dean's Office, Media or Curricular assistance)
  • MAT-Middle Grades, Secondary, and Special Education Graduate Assistantships
  • Click here to access forms for those that are already hired as Graduate Assistants.
