If, during the course of the semester, a student decides to leave the position, it is expected he/she will give 30-day notice. Likewise, if there is a need to terminate an assistantship, a student will be given 30-day notice. Students should be aware if their assistantship is terminated, either by themselves or the department, before completing 120 continuous days of employment (PER SEMESTER), all tuition and health benefits will be forfeited and the entire cost for those benefits will once again post to their student account. Should a student choose to resign from his/her assistantship, he/she must submit a letter of resignation to his/her supervisor, Graduate Studies, and NRBC. He/She may request a copy of the original signed offer letter from the Office Associate for Student Services.
