At the University of Arkansas, the Division of Student Affairs hopes to give each candidate applying for a graduate assistantship the opportunity to continue to develop their interview skills.
The Graduate Assistant application process is designed to replicate a job interview for entry to mid-level jobs within the Higher Education profession. Video interviews allow candidates to show their passion, personality, and insight while allowing recruitment teams to determine the best fit at the onset of the interviewing process.
Graduate students accepted into Student Affairs' GA program will work for one of the offices or departments in the division.
GA Day is coming virtually March 11th and 12th, 2021!
Applications open December 1st at 8 a.m. central time and will close February 5th, please refer to posting for closing time.
“March 11th will be Preview Day to virtually welcome you and to learn about the University of Arkansas, Division of Student Affairs, and the Higher Education program. March 12th will be Interview Day. We recommend you block off both whole days.
