Student Affairs Graduate Assistantships

The Arch

UGA Student Affairs is committed to serving as an educational laboratory for graduate students pursuing careers in Student Affairs, however, all students enrolled in or applying to a master's-level graduate degree program offered at the University of Georgia are eligible to apply for graduate assistantships through this process.

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 (Career Services, Office of Service Learning). Applicants should address questions regarding all other aspects of employment, including but not limited to tuition remission and payroll, to the specific assistantship provider.
