Graduate Assistantship Opportunities

NOTE: This page is currently being updated with available assistantships for 2019-20. In the meantime, you can still indicate your interest in positions on the UF SFC Graduate Assistant Application Interest Form-2019. As positions are available, your application will be shared with those hiring supervisors.


Departments within the Division of Student Affairs at the University of Florida and Student Affairs at Santa Fe College, as well as related departments and colleges, provide employment opportunities for graduate students interested in pursuing a career in a student affairs related field. These graduate positions enable students to combine the knowledge learned in the classroom with the experience of working in a professional setting. In other words, theory is put into practice. The personal and professional skills gained will be beneficial throughout a professional career.

If you plan to attend the SPHE program as a full-time student, please submit a UF SFC Graduate Assistant Application Interest Form-2019 when you submit your UF and SPHE program applications. These are separate but concurrent processes.  First priority for admissions to the SPHE program will be given to candidates who apply, interview, and are slated to be offered Graduate Assistantships/Employment due to the “theory-to-practice” nature of the program.

This application is for graduate student employment (typically 20 hour per week positions for the academic year). Some assistantships/positions are also available in the summer. Candidates must be accepted to a graduate program at the University of Florida in order to obtain graduate employment.  (NOTE: First preference is given to students applying to the SPHE master’s degree program.)

Some terminology to be aware of: ASSISTANTSHIPS typically include a stipend, tuition waiver, and health care; POSITIONS typically do not include tuition waiver or health care, but do include a competitive stipend and other benefits.
