CEHS Graduate Assistant Positions

Regular graduate assistants work an average of 20 hours per week and partial graduate assistants work an average of 10 hours per week as teaching, research, and/or service assistants. University tuition waivers are available for graduate students who obtain graduate assistantship positions within CEHS. The student will still be responsible for paying College tuitions and university fees, but waiving the university tuition will offset the cost of education, significantly.
