Graduate Assistantships and Tutoring Assistantships

The department offers highly-competitive Graduate Assistantships and Tutoring Assistantships to graduate students, which provide tuition waivers and a stipend. Graduate Assistants perform a variety of duties, including tutoring and teaching assistance for statistics courses, supporting undergraduate and graduate program events and activities, and providing research assistance. Tutoring Assistants serve as tutors for statistics and research methods courses, as well as provide other curricular support. Graduate Assistants work 10 hours per week and Tutoring Assistants work 5 hours per week during normal business hours at the DePaul University Lincoln Park campus. The work calendar runs from early September until Thanksgiving and from early January until early June, with a one-week spring break in late March.
