About Graduate Assistantships at Pacific
The Graduate School oversees all allocations of Graduate Assistantships (GA) at University of the Pacific. As a Graduate Assistant, you will be paid to support the teaching efforts in your department, which includes an hourly wage and tuition funding. If your program offers GA opportunities, the Graduate Program Director will talk with you about the specifics of their GA award program during the application process. If you are recommended for a GA from the Program Director, you will receive an official GA offer letter from the Graduate School. Funding for graduate assistantships is approved annually by the Board of Regents and funding letters will typically arrive after your Acceptance Letter.
