Assistantship apointments

Graduate assistantship appointments

Assistantships are a valuable part of the graduate student experience. Assistantships not only provide graduate students with paid work experience in a hands-on environment, but also provide faculty members with support from students with advanced skills in their discipline.

When appointing new graduate assistants, it is important that graduate programs use the Graduate School's template form for Graduate Teaching Assistantship/Graduate Research Assistantship/Graduate Asssistantship. Using this template ensures that graduate students are provided critical details of their assistantship offer. The assistantship template should be completed for each new appointment. A continuing appointment form should be completed anytime there is a change in type of graduate assistantship, tasks/responsibilities, or type and amount of compensation.
