Graduate Assistantships

Graduate Assistantships

Qualified graduate Library and Information Science students are eligible for assistantships which include tuition remission and a stipend; these assistantships are awarded for service to the Division and the University Libraries, including the Rittenberg Law Library, the Loretto Memorial Library in Staten Island, the Davis Library at the Manhattan campus and the Main Library on the Queens campus. Graduate assistants assist faculty with their research as well as other responsibilities as necessary. Graduate assistants are appointed for two consecutive semesters beginning in the fall semester of the academic year. Full-time enrollment (a minimum of 9 hours) is required each semester and a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 is required during the two semester appointment.
