    The Division of Student Affairs manages a number of graduate assistantships available each year that may be of interest to higher education administration master's students. These assistantships are promoted and placements are coordinated through the Student Affairs Graduate Association (SAGA); therefore, prospective students should visit their website for further information. Most assistantships for the following academic year are filled in March through interviews during SAGA Days. Graduate assistantships provide a tuition waiver, a biweekly stipend and access to insurance coverage. Additional information about graduate assistantships
