McCoy Graduate Assistantships

Graduate Assistantship (GA) positions offer McCoy graduate students the opportunity to generate income while working on campus. GA positions are available within each academic department within the McCoy College of business in addition to the Dean's Office. There are also GA positions available across the entire Texas State campus in other colleges and departments. Graduate assistant positions are posted on the Texas State jobs board, Jobs4Cats. Once accepted to a graduate program you can view the available positions on Jobs4Cats.

There are three things to note related to GA positions:

1) GA positions become available fairly regularly given that graduate school, for most students, is a relatively short endeavor. If the position you seek isn't available the first time you inquire, be persistent as it may be available the next semester.

2) The McCoy College of Business graduate assistantships may focus on research, instructional support, and/or administrative support.

3) Graduate Assistant positions are typically capped at 20-hours per week and you are paid via check or direct deposit just like you would be at a normal, non-university job. Your earnings do not serve to directly offset/discount the tuition and fees you are billed by Texas State University. HOWEVER, a major benefit to international or out-of-state students is that, in addition to the income, working as a graduate assistant typically qualifies you for the much less expensive in-state tuition rate.
