Cal U provides graduate assistantships to a limited number of qualified graduate students. A Graduate Assistant (GA) is a student employee supported by funds (a stipend) provided by the University or other source and administered through the University.

 A GA performs specific duties, such as: supporting instruction, supervising labs or other facilities, assisting faculty with scholarship, and contributing to departments’ academic, scholarship, and service endeavors. A GA receives part-time employment in the pursuit of a graduate degree, encourages scholarship, and enhances the academic experience.

     -- Contacting a department, office or program that is offering a position that aligns with their
