Graduate Assistantships

GSO Students

UNCP offers a number of graduate assistantships to qualified graduate students. Graduate Assistants (GAs) work a set number of hours a week (typically 15-20 depending on the pay) and must:

 

 

  • be formally accepted into a master’s program;
  • carry a minimum of nine (9) graduate credit hours per semester or three hours during each summer term in which they are employed. GAs in their final semester may request to take a reduced course load of six (6) semester hours;
  • have at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA (continuing students);
  • not be otherwise employed at UNCP without permission;
  • submit all of the required employment paperwork by the specified due dates; and
  • be professional in their GAship.

Graduate assistantship (GA) appointments:

  • may or may not be renewed;
  • may be terminated if GA is unprofessional or duties are not being satisfactorily performed;
  • typically begin with the first day of classes and end the last day of classes; and
  • generally are not available during the summer months.
  • Former GAs are not eligible for unemployment.
