As part of our commitment to making an education at National Louis University affordable, NLU is pleased provide institutional funds to offer Graduate Assistant positions. When you work as a graduate assistant, you do not receive a paycheck. Rather, graduate assistant funding is applied as a credit to your student account to cover tuition and fee charges. If accepted into the Graduate Assistant program, you can remain in the program until all of your degree requirements have been met.
To be eligible for a Graduate Assistant position, a student must
- be fully admitted to their graduate program of study

- demonstrate financial need via the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) www.fafsa.ed.gov
