2015-2016 Graduate Assistantship Selection Process
Welcome to the 2015-2016 Graduate Assistantship Selection Process (GASP) facilitated by the Division of Student Affairs at the University of Georgia. All students enrolled in or applying to a graduate degree program offered at the University of Georgia are eligible to apply for a graduate assistantship or graduate level employment opportunity through GASP.
The Division of Student Affairs is committed to serving as an educational laboratory for graduate students pursuing careers in Student Affairs. In line with this mission, preference may be given to applicants applying to or currently enrolled in the College of Education’s College Student Affairs Administration (CSAA) programs.
Please note: GASP is separate from the application process for admission to an academic program. In addition, positions listed are advertised for the 2015-2016 academic year, and their funding is contingent upon an approved budget.
