Assistantships are available for Metropolitan College graduate students through individual academic departments or programs. They typically range from 3 to 20 hours per week, allowing students to earn up to $5,500 per semester (paid in weekly installments) to assist with living expenses. Contact your department or program (information below) after receiving an offer of admission to a graduate program for information on the availability of assistantships and details about the application process.

Please note: All graduate students are eligible for assistantships, though priority may be given to continuing students over first-semester students.
