Graduate Assistantships

Almost 25% of our graduate students receive a graduate assistantship.

  • Beginning in the fall 2018 semester, full graduate assistantships at Minnesota State University, Mankato typically pay a stipend of at least $10,000 for the academic year.
  • A full assistantship also carries a waiver of up to nine graduate credits per semester.
  • Graduate Assistants must enroll in a minimum of six credits per semester.
  • Graduate Assistants with a summer appointment must enroll for at least one graduate credit.

Veterans should note that accepting a graduate assistantship offer may have an impact on Post 9-11 (Chapter 33) educational benefits. Individuals with questions about this should contact the Veterans Affairs Certification Officer.
