Each year a limited number of graduate assistantships are awarded to graduate students admitted with regular full admission status to a graduate program. Graduate assistants work 10 or 20 hours per week in assignments related to academic programs or university-wide service. They are paid an hourly stipend and receive a 50% tuition waiver for a 10-hour assistantship or a 20-hour assistantship with a 100% tuition waver. Students are required to pay full tuition beyond 9 credits per semester. There are no summer assistantships. Assistantships are available on the main campus of Clarion University and on the Venango Campus in Oil City, PA.
Graduate assistants must take at least 6 credits of course work per semester, perform assigned duties in a satisfactory manner, and remain in good academic standing.
Students wishing to apply for a graduate assistantship should complete the Application for Position of Graduate Assistant form and submit with it with their application to the graduate office.
