The Jindal School of Management (JSOM) provides assistantship to enrolled graduate students who are highly qualified and interested to be considered for employment in JSOM. Assistantship requirements may include, but are not limited to: academic performance in UT Dallas courses, prior experience, special skills needed by the academic area, anticipated graduation date, and graduate program of study.
All enrolled graduate students at JSOM must apply online for assistantship EVERY SEMESTER. Assistantship is not renewable automatically and prior service does not guarantee at all any subsequent appointment or availability of an assistantship position. Failure to comply with any of the requirements below for any reason, could result in revocation of the assistantship and associated benefits and privileges.
Note: Students should NOT submit, solicit or request letters of recommendation from faculty for any assistantship positions (TA, RA, etc.). Each academic area selects students based on their academic credentials/performance and special skills as noted earlier. With NO EXCEPTIONS, graduate students applying for assistantships:
- MUST maintain 9 semester credit hours of graduate coursework during the Fall or Spring semester or 6 semester credit hours of graduate coursework in Summer semester at JSOM during the semester of employment (even during the last/graduating semester).
