How do I become a GA?

If you've reviewed the duties, expectations, and benefits associated with graduate assistantships and are ready to apply, simply follow these steps:

  1. Contact your academic department to learn about available GA opportunities.
  2. Apply for a Graduate Assistantship. Complete and submit an application form through the Grad Rebel Gateway.
  3. Wait to hear from your academic department and the Graduate College regarding an assignment. Academic departments are responsible for recommending and assigning GAs, and you may receive word of an assignment from your department; however, your official offer will be made via electronic letter from the Graduate College and can only be accessed through your Grad Rebel Gateway Account.
  4. Please contact your academic department regarding the status of your application.

Deadlines

While deadlines vary by department, the Graduate College recommends that you submit your application by March 1 for the fall semester and by Nov. 1 for consideration for the spring semester. Visit your academic department for more information.
