Graduate assistantships provide students with practical experience in Student Affairs and other University departments. The assistantships are typically half-time appointments (20 hours per week), include a stipend, cover 70% of health insurance costs, and pay 80 % of in-state tuition for the academic year (all graduate students are granted in-state tuition). To qualify for an assistantship, a student must be admitted to the master’s program and registered as a full-time student (9 credits). Assistantships may be available in Housing and Residential Life, Campus Life, Leadership and Service, Multicultural Programs and Services, Advising, Career Services and Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution, and more. A full list of opportunities will be provided in the spring semester closer to SAGA Days.

When you register for SAGA Days, you will be asked to provide a copy of your resume; additionally, you will be asked to rank your top choices based on available assistantships. This will help the SAGA Day Committee schedule your interviews.
