Graduate Admission


Graduate assistantships are a great way to help finance your graduate experience at Xavier University. Graduate assistantship (GA) positions are available in many offices and departments on campus and provide an opportunity to gain valuable professional experience.

Office type GA positions offer an hourly wage and tuition remission in exchange for 10-20 hours of work per week for the full 16 week semester. Tuition remission, hours of work, and job responsibilities vary by position.

Important Information

Applicants must be accepted into a degree program at Xavier University to be considered for a graduate assistantship. Assistantship applications from students in non-degree programs and students in the application process will not be submitted for consideration.

Appointment as a graduate assistant may affect other financial aid eligibility. A student may receive more than one weekend degree assistantship, but contract hours may not exceed 20 hours per week. Xavier employees and their dependents, and students receiving any Xavier grant, scholarship, or tuition discount are not eligible to apply.

Individual graduate assistantships may become available throughout the year, but the main posting date for the following academic year is March 1st of each year. Additionally, all registered graduate students are sent an email to their XU email account when graduate assistantships are posted.
