Assistantships: Graduate, research, and teaching assistantships are available to highly qualified graduate students in many academic departments. Graduate assistants normally carry a 6 to 9 credit hour per semester course load and perform duties in laboratories, lecture halls, offices, and classrooms. The stipends for fully-funded assistantships generally begin at $6,700, plus any negotiated increases, for the academic year in addition to waiver of tuition in accordance with the policies and procedures established by the SUNY Board of Trustees.

Applicants for academic assistantships should indicate their interest on the graduate application form. Information about current openings, benefits, and application procedures may be found on the Graduate Studies Graduate Assistant website at
