The Division of Student Affairs at Indiana State University offers a number of assistantships to students enrolled full-time in graduate studies on the ISU campus. Persons in these positions provide services and advisement to students and student groups. They assist in the development and implementation of programs in their assigned department, and participate in staff professional development opportunities. Individual job descriptions are created in consideration of the career objectives of the person holding the position, as well as the needs of the department to which the person is assigned. For most assistantships in Student Affairs, preference is given to students enrolled in the Master's in Student Affairs and Higher Education or Doctorate in Higher Education programs.
Waiver of tuition (in-state or out-of-state) is included in the compensation package. Opportunities for summer employment may also be available. After the above waiver is applied, the student is responsible for a Contingent Fee. This fee can change from year to year. For Fall 2016, the Contingent Fee will be approximately $54 per semester hour. Please see the Bursar's Office website for up-to-date information on other fees.

Each assistantship typically requires a separate interview process. An assistantship at Indiana State University and at nearby colleges is a professional salaried experience providing opportunities to acquire valuable skills and to apply classroom-based learning. Most assistantships provide a cash stipend plus a tuition waiver (including out-of-state tuition). Live-in positions typically provide room and board also. Twenty hours work each week is required in an assistantship position.
Assistantships are offered on a limited basis and are competitive, at the same time, most students who seek assistantships and scholarships were able to obtain them on campus. The Department works diligently to provide qualified students with resources to meet their financial obligations. Offers of an assistantship are typically made by March 15 so the application and interview process must be complete by then.
The SAHE Preview Days was held on February 20-21, 2016 for candidates who had completed the application process and who have been recommended by the admissions committee.
The next SAHE Preview Days is tentatively scheduled for February 26-27, 2017, for candidates who have verified completed applications through the EDLR department and who have been recommended by the admissions committee. In the invitation to attend Preview Days, information will be provided to allow you to make preferences for assistantships. During Preview Days, students will have the opportunity to interview with available offices and departments for assistantships.
