A graduate assistantship is a student employment opportunity for graduate students. These opportunities offer academic/practical work experience while you pursue your graduate degree. Graduate Assistants work a set number of hours per week and, in return, receive a tuition waiver.

Each assistantship has its own unique job description and duties as assigned by the department or supervisor.
