Graduate assistantships offer degree-related experience and financial support for graduate students enrolled in the SDA master's program. These experiences are often an important factor when competing for positions after graduation. In order to be eligible for an assistantship, students must be admitted to Graduate School, enroll for a minimum of six credits per quarter during the time of their assistantship and make satisfactory progress toward their master's degree during their assistantship.
Graduate Assistants are typically employed from early-September to mid-June. Admission into the graduate program does not guarantee a graduate assistantship.
The Graduate Assistantship application is contained within the SDA program application; the deadline for both is December 1 for the following year. Admitted applicants will be invited to SDA Preview Days to be held at Seattle University.
The Preview Days for the 2018-19 academic year will be held on two different dates.
Group 1: February 22-23, 2018
Group 2: March 1-2, 2018
