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 Days: To be announced



GA Days

Applications open January 3rd and will close February 10th at midnight (12:00am) central time.

We review applications and offer selected candidates the opportunity to be interviewed and see what the Razorback community has to offer. Most, if not all, GA positions are filled during GA Days.

If you would like to join us for Preview Day (highly recommended) please fill out this form by February 10th at midnight (12:00am) central time.

We are in the process of switching application systems and we will be updating this page as we finalize details. Please continuously check back for added jobs as they are finalized.

Applicants will apply for each individual position on Workday and we will update this site with links to the positions when the applications open (see next tab). You will be able to use the same resume for each application and submit a generic student affairs cover letter. After the deadline, the Campus Life GA will reach out to you about setting up an interview. Please visit this website for more information on Workday.
