Graduate Assistantships

A limited number of graduate assistantships are available in the College of Business.

To qualify for a graduate assistantship in the College of Business, students must be fully admitted (regular admission) to a Master’s degree program in business administration, business information systems or accountancy.  Students admitted with a provisional or conditional status or admitted in graduate certificate programs are not eligible.

Graduate Assistantships provide a tuition scholarship, including out-of-state tuition, and a stipend.  Students must carry a minimum course load of nine graduate hours each semester, stay in good academic standing, and engage in 20 hours per week of on-campus assistantship duties assigned by the Associate Dean for Graduate Studies.  If a graduate assistant’s GPA drops below 3.0 at any time his/her assistantship, including stipend and tuition scholarship will be discontinued.

Students interested in applying for a graduate assistantship position must send a letter of interest and a resume to mbaadvising@ualr.edu and reference Graduate Assistantship Position in the e-mail subject line.
