Graduate students may receive a paid assistantship either at 0.33 FTE (13.2 work hours per week) or 0.49 FTE (19.6 work hours per week). Graduate Assistants are considered employees of the School. Advisers/supervisors are to discuss the expectations for the students, so their total work hours do not exceed the limit set by their FTE. If the graduate assistant is not meeting expectations, the supervisor/adviser is to contact the Graduate Committee Chair. Work assigned to a Graduate Assistant is not tied to their degree program.
