Cedarville University Graduate Assistant Openings

University Graduate Assistant (UGA) functions both as students and as professionals, enhancing their education by playing an important dual role. While studying to meet academic requirements for advance degrees, UGA's also complement their formal studies through research, teaching, administrative, and/or service work under the supervision or tutelage of faculty or staff. UGA refers generally to all graduate students enrolled at the University who are employed by the University to assist a faculty or staff member in the areas of administration, research, or to serve in some instructional capacity. A department may award an assistantship to a student with regular or conditional admission to the Graduate School.

The following university expectations are required of all UGAs:

  • Granted admission, either as a regular or conditional acceptance, into one of Cedarville University‚Äôs Graduate School programs;
  • Clear evidence of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and a consistent Christian lifestyle;
  • Affirmation of and willingness to abide by the Cedarville Covenant;
  • Agreement with the eleven doctrinal position statements we use as our definition of substantial agreement.

The following are the benefits UGAs receive:

  • Wage for services performed
  • Graduate School Tuition Grants
    The award of an assistantship of 0.50 FTE (1040 hours per year) or greater entitles the graduate assistant to 100% of graduate level tuition remission for all graduate level courses taken and successfully completed during the term of the assistantship. The award of an assistant of less than 0.50 FTE (less than 1040 hours per year) entitles the graduate assistant to 50% of graduate level tuition remission for the all graduate level courses taken and successfully completed during the term of the assistantship.
  • Meal Plan Subsidy
    The award of an assistantship entitles the UGA to a meal plan subsidy for meals taken in the university cafeteria based on specific guidelines for such established within the appointing department.
  • Cedarville University Graduate Student Health Insurance
    When a tuition grant is awarded, the assistantship also entitles the UGA single participation in the CU Graduate student health insurance plan. The premium for health insurance coverage will be paid by the University.

In order to apply for any UGA position, please complete the following steps:

  • Download the University Graduate Assistant application, complete, and return to the hiring department specified in the position announcement.
  • Along with the completed application, submit a written statement showing clear evidence of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and a consistent Christian lifestyle.
