Graduate Student Work Schedule

Full-time nine month academic and twelve-month administrative graduate assistants' work hours will be based upon a 20 hour per week schedule and on the negotiations with the individual units involved and the needs of that unit; i.e. if an office is open during a scheduled break, the GA may be expected to work all or a part of that break period. The negotiated schedule needs to be put in writing and signed by the student and the Department Chair. Department Chairs, Directors, Deans, and VPs may submit time sheets or other forms of documentation that account for the 20 hours per week. The contract duration and subsequent pay periods for nine-month contracts will be from August 15 to May 15. The contract duration and pay periods for twelve-month contracts will be from July 1 through June 30.
