Graduate Assistantships

Each academic year several Graduate Assistant positions are available for interested and qualified students. To be eligible to apply:

  • Be unconditionally admitted into a master’s degree program at Salem State University (required)
  • Enrollment in at least six credits each semester (required)
  • Minimum 3.0 undergraduate or 3.5 graduate GPA (preferred)
  • If required for admissions, satisfactory scores on standardized tests, TOEFL or IELTS (preferred)
  • Students may not have more than one graduate assistantship position at a time.

There are two categories of assistantships: research assistants and program assistants. Research assistants assist individual faculty with their scholarly work throughout the academic year. Program assistants provide service to academic programs such as the Writing Center during the tenure of their assistantship.

Each full-time assistantship carries a monthly stipend and an award of tuition remission. The stipend is for 10 hours a week rendered to the department to which the assistant has been assigned. The tuition remission is considered a financial resource in any Financial Aid award. For further information, contact the School of Graduate Studies at 978 542-6323.

 

Course Privileges for Students Over 60

The School of Graduate Studies has made the provision for students over 60 years of age to enroll in courses tuition-free if space is available. For special programs, institutes and seminars, it will be necessary to pay the program fee. It will be helpful for eligible students to present proof of age at registration for prompt processing.

 

Corporate Tuition Reimbursement

Many area employers will reimburse their employees in full or in part for courses considered job-related. Students are advised to check with their employer’s personnel office for detailed information.
