Graduate Assistant Student Positions
Several faculty and administrative office graduate assistant positions become available within GSOM each semester. Graduate level positions are hired on an hourly basis with a pay rate of $12 to $14 per hour, depending on the expectations and type of position.

Below are the guidelines for applying to these hourly positions. When applying:

  • Please allow up to 3 weeks from the position deadline for notification of a decision on a posted position.
  • Positions are assigned for 1 semester only.
  • Students re-applying or interested in working in the same position for the next semester should consult with their supervisor (some exceptions on the 3 unit requirement may be approved by the GSOM Associate Dean, Academic & Student Services, if a student has served in the same position for multiple semesters).

Due to a University policy, all employees, including students, must have a bank account that will allow the direct deposit of paychecks. Any student who receives an offer letter for a posted position must show proof of this before his or her work authorization can be completed.
