Funding Your Students

Thank you for supporting our graduate students.

Please know that a number of changes are underway with regard to offering graduate assistantships and hiring graduate students. Below are the new policies governing Graduate Assistantships that have been approved for inclusion in the 2016-2017 University Catalog. These new policies, and also new directives from the Office of Human Resources, are changing both how we offer GA positions and how we appoint GAs and fellows. In addition to requiring the use of the standardized, fillable, and customizable offer letters below, we also now ask that you appoint graduate students as either Graduate Teaching Assistants, Graduate Research Assistants, or Graduate Assistants (all defined in the documents below).

As always, don't hesitate to contact the Graduate School if you have any questions.
