Graduate Assistants


All Graduate Assistantship offers of employment with The University of Southern Mississippi are contingent on successful completion of a background check.  An individual may not begin with the University until the background check has been completed and they have been cleared to work.  The Background Check forms can be completed by clicking here.

All GAs will receive a tuition waiver equal to 100% of the assessed in-state and out-of-state (if needed) tuition fees. Tuition waivers do not cover course fees, student activity fees, international programming fees, textbook fees, capital improvement fees, or any other type of fees.
