Award Information

You must be admitted to the Graduate School with regular standing to be considered for a graduate award.

If you meet the minimum undergraduate grade point average required for admission with regular standing, you may be appointed to a graduate assistantship for one semester with reappointment contingent upon achievement of a 3.00 graduate grade point average for that semester and satisfactory performance of your graduate assistant duties.

You may not hold more than one graduate award for any given semester or academic year.

A graduate award holder cannot hold any other employment at Miami University during the term of the graduate award unless recommended by the department chair and approved by the graduate dean. International students (those with F-1 and J-1 visas) are allowed to work a maximum of 20 hours per week while classes are in session (this includes assistantship/associateship duties). An international student who holds a modified graduate assistantship with duties of eight hours per week may request permission to hold additional employment as long as that employment does not exceed 12 hours per week.

Award of a graduate appointment for one year involves no commitment for continued support by the university for subsequent years.
