Stockton Graduate Assistantships
Graduate Assistantships are an important form of financial support for degree-seeking graduate students and are offered by each of the graduate programs. Assistantships are granted in the form of tuition waiver and can vary from a one (1) credit waiver to nine (9) credits or the maximum tuition charge per semester, whichever is applicable. Awards are made on a semester basis during the academic year (August – May). Nominations are made by the faculty and program director of each graduate program and are then forwarded to the Dean of The School of Graduate and Continuing Studies for final approval. Students who are approved for an assistantship will receive an offer-of-appointment letter from the Dean.
Students must submit a Graduate Assistantship Application and letter of interest to their program director no later than October 31 for Spring semesters and March 31 for Fall semesters.
