Important: Students are responsible for obtaining their own assistantships.
Be proactive and contact departments in which you wish to be considered. The Graduate School does not place students; each department or hiring unit makes their own selection of graduate assistants.  Applications received from students who have not been fully admitted to a program will NOT be processed.
Applications are kept on file for one semester from the date received. Students should complete and submit a new application form each term.
