Graduate assistantships (GA) are available to incoming qualified full-time graduate students starting in the fall or spring semesters. GAs are awarded on a competitive basis contingent upon a student’s academic record and are offered by invitation only. GA tuition support is available for fall and spring semesters only.

A full-time GA is eligible to receive a tuition waiver for 8-12 graduate-level credits during the upcoming semester. The total amount of tuition support for a full-time GA whose assistantship is renewed is 36 credit hours. A full-time GA also receives a $1,500 stipend per semester, administered through the Financial Aid Office.

GAs are assigned to work 20 hours per week for an academic or administrative office. GA hours must be completed during standard working hours — Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. — and on campus. They must carry a full course load of at least 8 and no more than 14 credit hours per semester.

All graduate assistants must maintain a minimum 3.25 cumulative GPA. For additional information email grad@ut.edu.
