Graduate Assistant / College Work Study Program

Richmont’s College Work Study (CWS) Program provides financial support and training to degree-admitted graduate students, as Richmont qualifies to fund these positions as part of the Department of Education’s Title IV Loan Program. Students must meet the requirements of the Department of Education Title IV Loan Program. Applications are typically made during the summer prior to initial enrollment; however, positions may be filled during the academic year when available. The dean of students is responsible for advertising open CWS positions.

CWS students are assigned to and supervised by a Richmont faculty or staff member. A wide variety of administrative and clerical duties are performed with participants being paid an hourly stipend. Students work 150 hours both fall and spring semester and approximately 120 hours during the summer semester. The average is 10 hours per week.

Following are the requirements for participation in the CWS program:

M.A. Program
  • 9 hours per semester of academic coursework for fall and spring semesters
  • 5-6 hours of academic coursework for summer semester
M.S. Program
