Payment of Awards
Students supported on institutionally funded fellowships or assistantships are discouraged from seeking outside employment. It is the policy of the Graduate School that full-time students may not work in non-dissertation related research appointments, teaching assistantships or other instruction, or other employment (both on and off-campus) more than 19.9 hours per week. Students with institutional funding who do have compensatory commitments requiring on average more than 19.9 hours per week (non-dissertation related) may have their institutionally funded stipends and/or assistantships reduced.
Payment of graduate student scholarship, fellowship, and assistantship support are subject to the following policies.
Registration Policy - Students must be registered in the Graduate School in order to receive fellowship or assistantship support.
Assistantship Salary Payment Schedule - The payment of graduate assistantships, paid through the monthly faculty staff payroll, typically begins on September 25 and is made in equal payments on the twenty-fifth day of each month thereafter.
