Assistantships are awarded only to students with superior academic records and who qualify at the time of their enrollment. Students must have an undergraduate grade point average of at least 3.00, a graduate grade point average of at least 3.00 (where applicable), to qualify for, and to retain, an assistantship.
Both full-time and half-time Graduate Assistants must register for a minimum of 9 credit hours at, or above, the 500-level during the contract period for the semesters specified.
All student employees of the University, including Graduate Assistants, are limited to a maximum of 20 work hours of service per week during the semester. Graduate Assistants on half-time contracts (10 work hours per week) must, therefore, limit other University employment to 10 hours per week for a total not to exceed 20 hours per week.
Graduate Assistants on a full-time (20 work hours of service per week) contract may not hold other employment on-campus.
