William and Mary

Graduate Assistantships

The Division of Student Affairs and some other administrative offices on campus hire a number of graduate students each year to serve as Graduate Assistants (GAs). Below is a list of offices which are funded to support Graduate Assistants (only some of these positions represent openings in a given academic year). Select each link for a detailed description of the positions, benefits, selection criteria, etc.  We encourage you to contact the supervisors for positions that interest you in order to learn more.

All student affairs offices with GA vacancies for 2014-15 will interview higher education program candidates who are invited to "A Day at William & Mary: Join the Tribe!" from the evening of Sunday, February 23 through the afternoon of Monday, February 24.  We hope prospective higher education candidates will make plans to come and talk with us about the opportunities available for the coming year!

  • See the known/anticipated openings for 2014-2015.  A definitive list of all 2014-2015 openings will be determined in early February, several weeks before “A Day at William & Mary”
