Graduate Assistantships offer an opportunity to work teaching labs. The assistantship includes a stipend and a tuition waiver (fees are still paid by the graduate student).
To be considered for a graduate assistantship, fill out the Graduate Assistantship form (note: international students cannot work as graduate assistants their first semester at Southeast per state guidelines)
Applications for Graduate Assistantships can be turned in at any time. However, students who have not been admitted into the Graduate School will not be considered. In addition, assistantships are generally decided at the end of the spring semester (for fall assistantships) and the end of the fall semester (for spring assistantships). Therefore, Graduate Assistantship applications should be mailed at the same time as Graduate School applications for the best chance of receiving an assistantship.
