Students receiving a GTA or GRA appointment are required to enroll in minimum hours for each semester of their appointment. The minimum enrollment requirement is 6 hours for the Fall semester, 6 hours for the Spring semester and 3 hours for the Summer semester. GTA/GRAs may request enrollment in less than the normally required hours under certain conditions. Request forms for approval to reduce enrollment are posted on the GTR/GRA website page.
Total withdrawal from the University or enrollment in less than these minimum hours for the semester, without approval, will result in termination of the GTA/GRA appointment. Termination of said appointment for any reason before the minimum term of service for the semester of appointment has been met may result in an obligation to pay additional tuition as the result of reassessment to non-GTA/GRA tuition rates.
The minimum term of service requirement is:
GTA - 4 months for Fall semester appointment; 4 months for Spring semester appointment; and 1 month for Summer semester appointment
GRA - 3 months for Fall semester appointment; 3 months for Spring semester appointment; and 1 month for Summer semester appointment
