Graduate Assistantship Information

The department has a limited number of Graduate Assistantships available. Only students who have been officially admitted to a program can be awarded assistantships. Students who are admitted under "conditional" status are not eligible for assistantships until they are moved to regular status.

Although deadlines for fall admissions are in summer, the selection of graduate assistants generally takes place in March-April, therefore, if you wish to be considered for an assistantship position, you should ensure that your department application is complete prior to March if you plan to enter a program in fall.

Additional information about assistantships, including an application, can be requested by email Rosie.Edwards@usm.edu
