Graduate Teaching Assistantships are available in a variety of areas including studios, classes, ensembles, and clerical work. A full assistantship includes a stipend plus a waiver of the out-of-state surcharge for tuition and fees. The student remains responsible for all tuition and fees assessed at the in-state rate. To be eligible for a full assistantship, the student must be enrolled as a full-time graduate student as defined by the University Registrar. Partial assistantships are offered occasionally. The value of these awards will vary on a case-by-case basis.
Students awarded assistantships must agree to take the TA training course offered by the College of Graduate Studies before assuming teaching responsibilities. This course is offered during the week prior to the beginning of each semester.
