ASSISTANTSHIPS Teaching and research assistantships, which may include full remission of tuition and fees, are available to qualified applicants. Assistantships are normally awarded in the spring for the following academic year. Eligibility for assistantships is based on academic records, qualifications and financial need. These assistantships are granted in return for serving in the capacity of a laboratory teaching assistant and/or research assistant on a semester-to-semester basis. To be eligible for consideration for an assistantship, the student must complete the appropriate section on the official application. An international student seeking a teaching assistantship is advised that Duquesne University institutional policy and Pennsylvania state law requires that all instructional teaching assistants who are non-native speakers of English, be certified by the University as meeting acceptable standards of English language fluency. Candidates for teaching assistantships are required to submit TSE (Test of Spoken English) scores to the Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences. Also, candidates must sit for on-campus language tests conducted for such certification. If results of the on-campus language testing for such certification indicate that the candidate requires assistance with the English language, that candidate will be responsible for the cost of providing assistance until that individual’s language proficiency improves to acceptable standards. Also, testing results may affect the nature and/or limits of the candidate’s assistantship and instructional duties.
