Graduate Supervisor and Graduate Assistant positions are considered a .50 FTE assistantship and are listed as a 20-hour per week commitment. Due to the nature of working with staff and students in residence halls, there are weekly fluctuations in which graduate assistants may work above and beyond 20 hours in a given week. Graduate assistantships within Residential Programs and Services maintain the same benefits package, with the exception of the Graduate Assistant for Curriculum Development, please see information about that position for compensation information.
Graduate Supervisor positions will receive living accommodations either in their center of employment (if live in) or in an on campus apartment (if live on), insurance benefits, the I-Bucks 60 Plus Meal Plan, professional development funds ($250 first year/$300 second year), and a cash stipend of approximately $4,500 ($5,000 for returning staff).
Graduate Supervisors will be provided with a tuition fee remission which covers 100% of up to 24 credit hours at the University Graduate School rate* during the academic year. Fee remissions do not cover dedicated fees, mandatory fees, course-related fees or audit hours. An eligible appointee should be prepared to pay, at the time of registration, dedicated fees plus mandatory and special course-related fees. For a full list of mandatory and special course-related fees, refer to Student Central.
*If requested, Residential Programs and Services will also reimburse for up to 6 credit hours of tuition fee remission during summer sessions.
