Employment Limits

Employment Limits

If you have a university-funded fellowship, external fellowship, or graduate research assistantship (GRA), you may accept employment of no more than eight hours per week, if allowed in the terms of the fellowship. Students on graduate assistantships (GAs), research assistantships (RAs), or teaching assistantships (TAs) may work up to five hours per week, on or off campus, so long as the combined hours of the assistantship and work do not exceed 20 hours per week. In cases of dire financial need, a DGS may appeal to the Graduate School for an exception on your behalf.
