Quinnipiac University recognizes the importance of students working while pursuing their graduate studies. To assist students, the university offers students the ability to work within the university community. Please be aware, while we would like to assist as many students as possible, positions are limited.
Graduate Assistantships are available on a limited basis, to both full- and part-time graduate students. At Quinnipiac, our graduate assistants provide such services, including but not limited to: administrative support, instructor assistance, professional service in a field of expertise, and research.
- Students working in an administrative support area will receive a paycheck for the hours worked, the average hours awarded are ten hours weekly.
- Students working in areas of instructor assistance, professional service or research will receive a tuition waiver for hours of service performed. Students who work 150 hours in a semester will receive a tuition waiver for 3 credits.
Departments that offer Graduate Assistantship positions:
Interested students will need to submit the Graduate Assistantship application for consideration. One application must be completed for each position they are interested in obtaining (unless the contact person is the same). Applications will then be forwarded to the department's contact person for review. If you are interested in working with a specific department and know of possible openings, you can submit the application directly to the department.
