Graduate Assistantships: Introduction
The Georgian Court University graduate assistantship program provides graduate students with the financial resources necessary to pursue their degrees. This financial support—stipend, tuition remission, and benefits—is part of the University’s commitment to the success of our graduate students.
Graduate Assistants are, first and foremost, graduate students pursuing an education. The opportunity to work closely with faculty members and undergraduate students in living learning communities, research, or administrative environments is an integral part of that education. Georgian Court University is committed to ensuring that graduate assistant assignments are productive, enhance student learning, meet funding support and workload goals, and are consistent with the educational objectives of the student and his or her program.
Graduate students who hold assistantships benefit educationally and professionally. They develop professional expertise; enhance research skills and acquire experience in leadership, interpersonal effectiveness, administrative experience; and benefit from collegial collaborations with faculty mentors and administrators. Skills learned in assistantships prepare students not only for the educational setting, but the workforce.
