Assistantship Application

Fall Deadline: May 1st
Spring Deadline: December 1st

The Department of Art is provided each year with funds for the purpose of awarding assistantships to art majors to provide financial assistance and involve them in the operation of the department programs. Students with a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 and above are eligible. Other criteria for appointment include activity in the art department, student skills, and department needs. The amount of the award is applied directly to the student’s account. Students awarded assistantships will be assigned to a faculty member who will supervise their work. The amount of the award is determined in part by the number of hours of coursework the student takes. Assistantships will not exceed instate tuition. The number of hours of a student works will be determined by the amount of the assistantship. The rate of pay will be $8.50 per hour. The formula below provides pay and work time involved.

Amount of award-number of weeks in semester (14) – rate per hour = hours per week

($1,190/14 wks/$8.50 per hr = 10 hours per week)

The department will not make awards to students enrolled for less than six credit hours. The hours need not all be art courses. Awards are determined prior to each academic semester. Application or re-application must take place prior to each semester and in compliance with posted deadlines.
