How do I apply as an Assistant?


Students – please note that the Student Application Website for Spring 2022 positions will not be open until early to mid-November.  Announcements about how and when to apply for S22 positions will be sent via the student list serve in the coming weeks, so please just be diligent about checking your SIUE e-mail in late October. 


Students apply for URCA Assistant positions through this website. Click here for a complete listing of all Assistant positions that are available for the Fall 2021 semester.

Students are able to 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 Fall 2021 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, August 23rd, 2021. However, faculty may choose to fill their positions earlier.  As such, be sure to frequently check your email over the break.
