Master of Education in Student Affairs

Most assistantships in the Division of Student Affairs require you to be a full-time, degree-seeking student enrolled in the Master of Education - Student Affairs program. We encourage you to investigate our program to ensure that it will meet your needs as a student. Also, please keep in mind that if you are offered a position as a Graduate Assistant, you must have been accepted and offered admission by the Graduate School. If you do not meet the standards of the Graduate School and/or the individual program in which you are interested, you may not accept a graduate assistantship.

All candidates for graduate assistantship positions must apply to the Graduate School. The DEADLINE for application is February 1, 2014
