How do I apply as an Assistant?


Students apply for URCA Assistant positions through this website. Click here for a complete listing of all Assistant positions that are available for the Spring 2023 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 Spring 2023 semester may apply. Students are not allowed to hold both an URCA Assistant and an URCA Associate position at the same time.

Please note, the deadline to apply for a Spring 2023 URCA Assistant position is Wednesday, December 14th at 5pm.

Faculty must select students to fill their positions by Monday, January 9th, 2023. However, faculty may choose to fill their positions earlier.  As such, be sure to frequently check your email over the break.
