The Master of Education in Student Affairs graduate program requires applicants to be selected for a Graduate Assistantship to have the offer of admissions confirmed with the Graduate School. Clemson University Graduate Assistant Recruitment and Selection (CU-GARS) is a multi-day experience that allows invited M.Ed. in Student Affairs applicants to be considered as candidates for graduate assistantships. The weekend will provide candidates with the opportunity to connect with potential cohort mates, find an assistantship and learn more about the Clemson experience.

On the first day, candidates have the opportunity to tour campus, connect with faculty members and current students, learn more about available graduate assistantships, and explore Clemson.

The second day consists of multiple 30-minute graduate assistantship interviews (8:00 a.m. - 5:15 p.m.), with an hour-long lunch break and a 45-minute Meet the Faculty session. After interviews are complete, candidates will have an opportunity to continue connecting with current students and other prospective students through planned social activities.

The last day allows candidates to experience Death Valley and gain an understanding of a piece of Clemson's history. Candidates will also be able to ask questions of current students before departing campus.

Participation in CU-GARS is by invitation only. To be considered by the faculty for an invitation to participate, you must complete both the Graduate School and Graduate Assistantship applications. Please take time to review more detailed information about the graduate program and our graduate assistantships for the student affairs program.
