The student may be required to devote a maximum of twenty hours a week to such work, not more than ten hours of which may be in classroom contact hours. The normal course load for a graduate assistant is six hours per semester.

Graduate assistants receive a stipend of $3,000 to $3,500 for the academic year and remission of tuition and registration fees for the academic year and summer session. Appointments to assistantships are for one year. Graduate assistantship applications are available on the graduate studies Web site.
