Petition for GA/TA Dual Employment

Full-time graduate assistants/teaching assistants (GAs/TAs) are expected to invest approximately 20 hours (0.50 FTE) per work week (for both semester and academic year appointments) on GA/TA employment. It is recommended that the remainder of their time be focused on making progress toward degree completion. Thus, any additional work assignment by any full-time GA/TA is generally prohibited and would require exceptional circumstances and explicit approval from Human Resources and the Graduate School prior to the commencement of any duties. In approving such exceptions, consideration is given to the degree to which such an appointment might benefit career goals, impact degree completion, and affect other students within the program, as well as to the total number of hours per work week.
