Participating in teaching and research is an important part of the professional development of graduate students in the Department of Educational Psychology. A limited number of graduate assistantships are available through the department and the Oscar and Luella Buros Center for Testing. These are awarded on a competitive basis to qualified students. Students must be proactive in their search for assistantships. Typically, 85% of the doctoral students seeking assistantships are able to obtain one. However, assistantships for master level students are less frequently available within the department. Please make note that, while most students prefer an assistantship within their home department, you may obtain an assistantship anywhere on campus.
Most assistantships include tuition remission (up to 12 credits per semester and in some cases 12 credit hours in the summer) during the semester of the appointment. The assistantships typically require 13 to 20 hours of service per week. Some graduate assistantships are available during the summer sessions as well.
For more information concerning graduate assistantships contact your program director. Program directors are listed on the websites for each program area.
