EMPLOYMENT
Students may search for on-campus job opportunities through the Virtual Job Board.

RESEARCH & TEACHING ASSISTANTSHIPS
The MSFE Program does not have RA or TA positions. Other departments on campus may seek to hire students for such positions. This is a decentralized process on campus and students seeking such positions must contact individual departments directly. It should be noted that the MSFE program does not honor tuition waivers requested by other departments. Therefore, any students offered an RA or TA position from another department should negotiate a salary in lieu of a tuition waiver.

You may learn about other assistantship opportunities on campus by going to the Assistantship Clearinghouse.

INTERNATIONAL EMPLOYMENT
The Department of Immigration and Naturalization Services strictly regulates employment for international students. For more information regarding employment, contact International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) or the Graduate College.
