Graduate Assistantships

All graduate assistants will be selected by the Graduate Studies Committee of the School of Visual Communication Design. Applications for assistantships will be handled through the Division of Research and Graduate Studies. Specific assignments will be made by the VCD Graduate Coordinator.

The Graduate Studies Committee will decide on appointees based on grade point average, portfolio, letters of recommendation, and statement of goals, as well as the specific needs of the School. Graduate assistantships are awarded at the time of the admission. Please specify if you are interested in the G.A. in your goal or bio statement.

Graduate applicants wishing to apply for financial aid should fill out the FAFSA. If applying for financial aid, please be sure to select Work Study in your application. Contact the One Stop for Student Services at Kent State University with questions.
