Graduate Assistantship Application


A limited number of full- and part-time graduate assistantships are awarded to MSPS students on a competitive basis. These assistantships cover full or half of the cost of tuition in return for working in a variety of positions on campus through the College of Basic and Applied Science, the College of Liberal Arts, or College of Behavioral and Health Sciences for 20 hours (if full-time) or 10 hours (if part-time) per week. Out-of-state residents also receive a waiver of out-of-state fees.

Students must be accepted into the MSPS program before they can apply for an assistantship.  

After you have been accepted to the MSPS program, we encourage you to apply for a graduate assistantship.  

Graduate Assistantship Application Process

  1. Fill out an application.
  2. All applications are reviewed by the MSPS program after we know the number of assistantships available for the next semester, typically 1-2 months before the next semester (November for the spring semester, April for the summer, and late July for Fall).  
  3. You will be contacted if you are awarded an assistantship.  

Please note:  you must send your completed application to Graduate Studies–not the MSPS program–to be considered for a graduate assistantship.
