A graduate assistantship can help finance your graduate degree. Graduate assistants work on-campus and receive a monthly stipend and a full tuition waiver. Assistantships are available through the MBA program (working with MBA faculty) and in other campus offices as well.
MBA Program - Graduate Assistantships
The MBA program assistantships are awarded on a competitive basis considering your undergraduate GPA, GMAT scores, and letters of recommendation. There are many qualified applicants and only a limited number of assistantships available. These graduate assistants work specifically with business faculty in the College of Business and Technology.
These assistantships are considered 2/3 time (working 13 hours per week) and currently offer a stipend of $613 per month plus the tuition waiver. These are offered each semester, although generally a student is offered Fall/Spring assistantships in May for the next school year. Graduate Assistants can register for 9-12 semester hours of coursework. The assistantship does not waive University fees (roughly $900/semester).
MBA students who complete an Application for Assistantship (available from the School of Graduate Studies) are automatically eligible for an MBA Program assistantship.
