Each semester, a limited number of graduate assistantships are made available to full-time, fully matriculated graduate students through individual programs and offices. Nearly all graduate assistants work as clerical staff or tutors, although some assist in laboratory sections, especially in computer science.
Criteria include scholastic achievement and demonstration of professional competence as determined by course and/or life experience. In exchange for hours worked, a student may obtain a tuition credit in increments of one credit to a maximum of six credits per semester. Students are expected to work a total of 50 hours per semester for each credit. International students may not work in excess of 20 hours per week in accordance with BCIS regulations. To apply for an assistantship, contact the academic department of your program of study after you have been accepted for admission into a graduate program.
