Graduate Assistantships

Applicants must have earned an undergraduate degree and currently working toward their graduate degree (future Cleary University MBA students can apply during their admissions process). Students in this position are expected to bring experience and expertise to their role.

The following types of activities are deemed to be well suited for the Graduate Assistant role:

  • Specialized recruitment
  • Faculty chair assistants
  • Fundraising assistant
  • Research assistant
  • Web coordinator
  • Student activities coordinator

The Graduate Assistant, while enrolled in the Cleary University MBA program, is required to take one graduate class per session (four credits) and remain in good academic standing (3.0 GPA) in an MBA program. Note: The GA Grant is limited to one class per session. If the student withdraws from coursework, eligibility for the assistantship and scholarship ends immediately.

Graduate Assistants will be paid a stipend of $500/month, $250 per payroll period, pro-rated if the GA is not employed for the entire month. The GA will work an average of 24 hours per week for the University, either on or off-campus. GA supervisors are responsible for ensuring performance expectations are met and for terminating the assistantship if they are not met.

Graduate Assistants will also receive a 75% graduate tuition scholarship for their Cleary University MBA program providing the above standards and requirements have been met. Scholarships will not be applied to additional courses needed due to poor academic progress.
