Students, we are not quite ready for you to apply for Spring 2021 positions yet.  In mid-to-late October, Dr. Pawlow will send announcements over the student listserve about how and when to apply for those positions (applications will be due before the winter break).  Please check your SIUE e-mail diligently in the coming weeks for those messages!

How do I apply as an Assistant?

The application deadline for Spring 2021 is Friday, December 11, 2020 at 12:00 p.m. (Noon).  No late applications will be accepted.  

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 2020 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 2020 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 24, 2020. However, faculty may choose to fill their positions earlier.  As such, be sure to frequently check your email over the break.
