Graduate teaching and research assistantship contracts

For students to be paid in a timely manner, contracts should be received in the Graduate School a minimum of three weeks before the start date of the contract.

The Graduate Teaching and Research Assistantship Handbook will serve as a reference guide to the policies and procedures related to University teaching and research assistantships and tuition scholarships.

All teaching and research assistants must complete a Form I-9 form before they can be paid. Students will receive notification in their Workday inbox when the step in the hire process has been reached where they are able to complete their Form I-9.  Notification will not be received until all other required steps and approvals in the hire process have been completed.
