Graduate Assistantships

TA Hiring Procedures for CPH Undergraduate courses

Graduate assistantships are broadly considered to be the best way to fund graduate school. Your assistantship could consist of teaching a class, working as a research assistant, or other duties. Students holding a 25 percent or greater teaching or research assistantship appointment will be assured a tuition scholarship. To view assistantships outside your home department, see the Graduate College’s Open Assistantships Page. Assistantships are covered by the COGS collective bargaining agreement.

Summary of 2018-19 agreement

For the 2017-18 academic/fiscal year, the university will honor the terms of the 2015-17 COGS contract that impact graduate student employees. This means that benefits such as health insurance and terms of employment such as sick leave will continue to be offered.  The 100% tuition scholarship award will continue.  The portion of graduate student mandatory fees supported by the university will increase to 50%.

Other resources

Students holding a 25% or greater teaching or research assistantship appointment will be assured a tuition scholarship. The university’s contribution towards the tuition for graduate assistants is listed below. The scholarship will be pro-rated, so that students who are registered for less than 9 s.h. will receive the appropriate percentage of full tuition according to the number of credit hours for which they are registered.
