Preferred Fall 2020 Deadline: May 15th 

Approximately 120 graduate assistantship (GA) positions are sponsored by The College of Saint Rose each academic year. They are meant to provide qualified master’s degree candidates with opportunities to augment their educational experiences. Assistantships place emphasis on meaningful professional activities through engagement with college faculty and/or administrators. The selection process is competitively-based and may include an interview.

Who is eligible?

In order to be eligible students must:

  • Be admitted to a master’s degree program at The College of Saint Rose (students in dual degree programs – eg. BS/MS, BS/MSED, BS/MBA, ASPIRE, etc. are not eligible) as either a/an:
    • Unconditionally accepted student.
    • Conditionally accepted student pending receipt of proof of certification.
    • Conditionally accepted student pending receipt of assessment (GRE/MAT/edTPA).
    • Conditionally accepted student pending receipt of final transcript.
  • Be enrolled full-time (at least 9 graduate credits).
  • Maintain a minimum overall GPA of 3.0.
  • Not be registered for full-time student teaching, internship, practicum, or field placement, during the term of position.
  • Not have accepted other institutional aid or tuition benefit (i.e. Scholarships, tuition discounts, etc.).
    • You can combine a GA position with a grant.


How does it work?

  • GA’s are awarded a $3,200 tuition based grant in return for 150 hours of work each semester (Fall and Spring).
  • The award is applied directly to the GA’s student account (much like a student loan or grant) at the end of each semester/completion of 150 hours.


How Can I Be Considered?

Students may indicate an interest in being selected for a GA position on the application for admission. All GA positions require a resume and cover letter as part of the application process.

Applying for GA positions:

  • Visit HireStRose to find currently available positions for the upcoming academic year.
  • Submit your resume and cover letter to each position you are interested in via HireStRose. We ask that you indicate your graduate program, how many credits you plan to be registered in both the fall and spring semesters, as well as if you will have outside employment or practical experience (internship, student teaching, etc.) during either of these semesters. For some helpful tips about creating an effective resume and cover letter, be sure to refer to the Career Center Handbook. Positions are filled on a rolling basis, so please be sure to apply as soon as possible.
  • Go to HireStRose directions for information on logging in, as well as searching and applying for Graduate Assistantships.

Once your application materials have been submitted, hiring supervisors will contact you regarding the interview process. Each supervisor may handle this process differently and in a different time frame. Please be patient during this process.
