Graduate Catalog 2016-2017
Graduate assistantships are available through various academic departments and administrative offices on campus. Duties of graduate assistants consist of nonteaching functions such as grading papers, monitoring exams, assisting in administrative assignments, or participating in research projects.
Assignments range from 12 to 20 hours per week and provide stipends from $3,000 to $6,000 per academic year. A graduate assistant may receive a tuition award and a stipend. Graduate assistants are considered full time when registered for 9 graduate credits per semester. A tuition scholarship, if awarded, is for a maximum of 9 graduate credits each fall/spring semester. Stipends and/or tuition awards do not cover college fees, which are the responsibility of the student.
Graduate students appointed to an assistantship must be in good academic standing in a degree program with a minimum GPA of 3.0 and maintain a full-time registration (nine credit hours) concurrent with the appointment.
Application forms may be obtained from the department or office offering the assistantship. A list of available assistantships can be found at https://jobs.buffalostate.edu/.
