Associate Instructorships, Graduate Assistantships, and Research Assistantships
A large number of associate instructorships, graduate assistantships, and research assistantships are available in departments and schools offering degrees through the University Graduate School. Some of these positions are accompanied by fee remissions which defray a large percentage of tuition and fees. Application for such positions should be made to the department or school in which the student wishes to work. Early application is advisable.
Positions are available on the Bloomington campus and at IUPUI for single graduate students to serve as resident assistants in the residence halls. Selection of graduate students for these positions is based on the applicant’s academic record, previous background and experience, potential for work with undergraduate students, and personal qualifications necessary to relate successfully to other people. The resident assistant serves as an advisor to a living unit of 50 students in one of the university residence centers. These positions provide room, board, and a cash stipend; course work is limited to a maximum of 12 credit hours each semester.
