NOTE: It will be helpful to secure a graduate assistantship position before admission to our department. While interviewing for a position, inform the interviewer that you are in the process of applying to the Counseling and Higher Education for graduate school. If you wait until later to apply, many positions may be taken and there will be less of a chance to obtain a GA position.
