Not to be confused with the practicum experience, an assistantship helps in financing graduate study while also providing important practicial knowledge. In return for financial assistance, students work a set number of hours in various functional areas of student affairs. Mulitple assistantships are avialable at Northeastern Unviersity and at local colleges. Although abundant, assistantships are competitive and therefore it is strongly recommended that all admissions materials be submitted by February 1, 2012 for priority assistantship consideration. The total financial benefit of an assistantship varies as some include tuition assistance as well as room and board.

Assistantship functional areas at local colleges:

  • Academic Advising
  • Career Services
  • Commuter Student Services
  • Cultural Centers
  • Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgender Center
  • Greek Life
  • Leadership Development
  • Orientation and First-Year Programs
  • Residence Life
  • Student Activities and Programming
