Each year, Mercy College supports a small number of Graduate Assistantships that give students paid work experience in an academic setting, preferably on projects that are closely aligned with their professional plans. Most of these roles involve being part of a team with faculty and staff in department or program offices. Graduate Assistantship awards may be either full-time or part-time. Full-time tuition remission is 12 credits annually, with a monthly stipend of $200. Part-time tuition remission is six credits annually, with a $100 monthly stipend.
