Student Affairs and our campus partners serve as an educational laboratory for graduate students pursuing careers in higher education broadly as well as student affairs more specifically.



The Office of Vice President for Student Affairs (OVPSA) coordinates the selection process for graduate assistantships in Student Affairs and in offices of our campus partners, including the Career Center, New Student Orientation, and the Office of Service Learning. Each year, we invite incoming and current master’s-level graduate students to apply for positions and attend our Visiting Days program. 

This process is not inclusive of all assistantships available across the university. We encourage you to reach out to departments you are interested in working with to determine if they may have positions available for the upcoming year.


All students enrolled in or applying to a master’s-level graduate program offered at the University of Georgia are eligible to apply for assistantships through our process.


Each assistantship comes with the following:

  • Tuition Waiver – Covers either in-state or out-of-state tuition as well as summer tuition.
  • Stipend – May include different requirements and compensation. View position descriptions or contacting assistantship providers directly for more information.
