Gain important experience and take up to 12 credit hours each semester and pay no tuition costs (some fees still apply) by working as a graduate assistant in the Department of Mathematical Sciences.

You’ll work 20 hours a week helping students in the computer lab, grading papers, tutoring students in the Learning Center, assisting with research duties, or teaching a class. You’ll need to be enrolled full-time, taking at least 6 credit hours. Our department awards about 11 graduate assistant positions each year and supports a total of 22 graduate assistants within the department.

We begin reviewing assistantship applications on February 1, so it’s important to complete the department application process early. For international students, we recommend a target deadline of January 1 for all application materials. (If you do not wish to be considered for an assistantship, we need to receive your complete admission application materials at least four weeks prior to the start of the semester you are applying for.)

During the fall and spring semesters, you also can consider working as a graduate assistant in other departments throughout the university. You can view available positions and learn more about being a graduate assistant.
