Please note the information below regarding enrollment requirements for graduate students appointed as graduate assistants for summer term.

  • 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.

The tuition remission for a graduate assistant appointment covers a maximum of 16 credits per term. Any cost for credits beyond 16 are not covered by the remission and must be paid by the student.
