 Graduate Assistantships

Each academic year, Seton Hall offers a limited number of Graduate Assistantships. Assistantships pay full tuition for a certain number of credits per semester and provide a monthly stipend. In exchange, Graduate Assistants must work 20 hours per week and maintain a grade point average of 3.0 or better. Ordinarily, assistantships are automatically renewed for a second year provided both the student and supervisor are satisfied with the arrangements.
