Eligibility

To be eligible for a graduate assistantship, applicants must be regularly admitted to a degree program. Students who are conditionally admitted are not eligible for assistantships unless their deficiencies are undergraduate prerequisites. Provisionally admitted and non-degree students are not eligible to apply for assistantships.

Applicants must have an undergraduate GPA of 2.75 or higher.  Applicants with previous graduate coursework must have a graduate GPA of 3.0 or higher.

Appointment Process

Students interested in applying for a graduate assistantship must submit an application form and three letters of recommendation to the department or program in which an assistantship is desired. Applications should not be made to the Graduate School.  Application review and interviews are completed by the hiring program/department.
Once a candidate is selected, a Graduate Assistant Request will be submitted to the director of the Graduate School for final approval. Once approval is granted by the Graduate School, an acceptance letter must be signed by the candidate. This letter outlines the responsibilities, type of assistantship, and compensation offered through the assistantship and must be returned to the Graduate School before the candidate begins work or any tuition waivers are applied. Some departments have specific requirements for their graduate assistants beyond the Graduate School minimums; each applicant should inquire with the hiring supervisor regarding additional requirements. Note: although the Graduate Assistant Application is often submitted with regular admissions materials, this is not a guarantee that an assistantship will be awarded. The graduate assistant appointment process is completely separate from the ULM Graduate School application process.

Work Load

All graduate assistant appointments include 20 hours of work per week under the direction of the student’s supervisor. Graduate assistants are not permitted to hold any other on-campus employment or second graduate assistantship.

During published student breaks, graduate assistants may not be asked to work. For unexpected University closures, graduate assistants will not be expected to make up time missed.
