Campus policy defines waiver-generating assistantship appointments as those “ranging from 25 percent through 67 percent time (based on a 40-hour week) for at least three-quarters of the academic term.”
Because the revisions to the academic calendar for Spring 2021 reduce the number of days in the term, the minimum days needed for a graduate student appointment to generate a tuition waiver will be reduced from 91 days to 83 days.
This change is being made to align the policy with the shortened Spring term and applies only to the Spring 2021 semester .
The Graduate College website with dates for appointments has been updated to reflect this information.
Please contact the Graduate College, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any questions.
