A variety of opportunities for graduate assistantships exist. Deadlines for assistantships vary and therefore students are strongly encouraged to submit assistantship applications at the same time they are applying to the graduate program in Special Education.

Department Assistantships
The Department offers several assistantships. These graduate assistantships assist faculty with their teaching and research responsibilities. The deadline for these assistantships is April 1 for the following fall. Application form can be found at

University Assistantships
Many of our students find assistantship opportunities across campus. By directly contacting individual units on campus such as the Student Service Center, the Bursar's Office, Faculty Technology Center, the Library, Housing, other individual departments such as Curriculum and Instruction, and the School of Education, Health and Human Behavior, students may identify additional assistantship opportunities that exist. Application deadlines for assistantships across campus may vary.

The Graduate School also provides information regarding graduate assistantships. This information may be found on the Graduate School website at
