Graduate Assistantships

Approximately 35-40% of our MAS (Leadership) and MST degree-seeking students receive a graduate assistantship. There are two types of assistantships: (1) teaching and (2) research.  Students work with Accountancy faculty and with other departments and offices on campus.

All assistantships carry a partial tuition waiver.  Students also receive a monthly stipend.  The stipend amount depends on the number of hours worked per week. 

Assistantships are not guaranteed. Phase I LMAS international students are not considered for assistantships during the first year of the program. 

Required Criteria for Consideration 

  • Minimum GPA of 3.0/4.0
  • Good communication and computer skills
  • Complete application submitted by deadline

How to Apply

Assistantship applications are available in the department office BH345.  Complete and submit to John Simon (jsimon@niu.edu), Director of Graduate Financial Assistance, by March 31st.
