How do I apply as an Assistant?

The application deadline for SPRING 2014 positions was Monday, December 2,  2013, at 4:00 p.m.  No late applications are being accepted.

Students apply for URCA Assistant positions through this website. Click here for a complete listing of all Assistant positions that were available for the Spring 2014 semester.

Students may apply for multiple positions, but a new application must be completed for each position. Also, students are only allowed to accept one Assistant position per semester! Once you've committed to one professor's position, you are not allowed to accept another professor's offer.

Any undergraduate student who has a cumulative GPA of 2.3 or above and who will be enrolled as a full-time student (minimum of 12 credit hours) at SIUE for the entire Spring 2014 semester may apply. Students are not allowed to hold both an URCA Assistant and an URCA Associate position at the same time.

Faculty must select students to fill their positions by Monday, January 13, 2014. However, faculty may choose to fill their positions earlier.  As such, be sure to frequently check your email over winter break.
