Must be enrolled full time and maintain a 3.0 GPA. Graduate Assistantships are awarded in April for the following academic year. Therefore, students enrolling in January are unlikely to receive an assistantship. Students are encouraged to apply by November 15 for the following fall if seeking an assistantship. Current full time students are also eligible for Graduate Assistantships and should notify the MBA office of their interest as soon as possible before April for the following fall. Graduate Assistantships are allocated by the Graduate School, and sometimes include partial or full waivers for tuition costs. The MBA director assigns Graduate Assistantships within the College of Business each semester.
