  • A graduate student who is appointed as a graduate assistant (GRA/GTA) in summer term must enroll in a minimum of 3 credits, per the minimum enrollment policy.
  • There may be income tax on salary for graduate students appointed as graduate assistants in summer term who are enrolled in less than 5 credits. Contact payroll or your tax professional with any questions regarding potential tax implications.
