Additional On-Campus Employment Outside of Graduate Assistantship Duties
Graduate students pursuing additional on-campus employment outside of their assistantship, must obtain prior approval from the College of Graduate Studies before they start working. The main focus of students with assistantships is to work full or part-time toward their degree, this depends upon the enrollment requirements for the assistantship.
Exceptions will be made only for assignments of short duration, per semester, if the student has a minimum GPA of 3.0, and the student is registered for the required hours, per their full or part-time assistantship status. International students are only permitted to work a total of 20 hours per week during the academic year and up to 30 hours per week during summer semesters. Domestic students are allowed to work a maximum of 24 hrs per week, including their assistantship, for the entire year.
For graduate students to receive approval, they must submit the Request for additional On-Campus Employment Outside of Graduate Assistantship Duties Form to the College of Graduate Studies. The student’s advisor must also approve the extra duties, arguing that the student’s progress toward their degree will not be delayed or disrupted by the additional assignment. Within 48 hours after previous semester grades have been posted, the student and the supervisor of the position will be emailed the approval or denial of the additional duties.
