Graduate Assistantships

Graduate students may be eligible for assistantships through Manhattan College.

What is a Graduate Assistantship?

Assistantships provide students with training and valuable professional experience in higher education work environments. Assistantship duties should not interfere unduly with academic studies, but rather should contribute to students' intellectual growth and degree goals.

Assistantships are considered primarily as a form of financial aid to help graduate students complete graduate school. Compensation includes tuition remission up to 9 credits and sometimes a stipend.


Any student applying for a graduate assistantship position must meet the following requirements:

  • Accepted by Graduate Admissions at Manhattan College (Please present an official acceptance letter from Manhattan College Graduate Admissions upon application.)
  • Matriculated in a degree seeking, qualified program
  • 5 Year Program students must have earned a minimum of 120 credits prior to applying for assistantship
