Graduate Assistantships

Graduate assistantships are available to students in all areas of concentration. Students applying for graduate assistantships should show competence in the particular area in which they wish to work, and should meet the specific needs of the faculty member involved.

Graduate assistantships require ten hours of work per week during the semester. In return, the assistantship provides a tuition waiver for six credit hours per semester, plus a monthly stipend. Graduate assistants must be registered for a minimum of six credit hours of course work that is acceptable for credit toward the MBA/MACCT/MS-ISA degree. Anderson awards approximately 70 graduate assistantships each fall and spring semester for qualified students. Graduate assistants typically report to a faculty member who defines expectations and responsibilities. Students who have completed coursework in the program are more likely to be hired as a graduate assistant, as these students can demonstrate competence in the program.

How to Apply

Assistantships are competitive and are awarded on a rolling basis. It is in the best interest of the applicant to submit early and contact a faculty member with an indication of interest. The Application for Graduate Assistantship forms are sent to students with their admission letter electronically. To apply, email your completed graduate assistantship application, resume and unofficial transcripts to the Graduate Programs Advisor. Faculty will contact applicants they are interested in hiring, which typically occurs prior to the start of the semester. You may also email the Graduate Programs advisor to request an application.
