Graduate Assistants on Proposals


Graduate assistants, both Fiscal (12 months) and Academic (9 months), are not required to pay tuition from their assistantship stipends. Support for GA's should appear as follows:

Budget category:

604000 - GA salary
(commensurate with  department standard)

668010 - Graduate Assistant Tuition

"Nonresident" fees are automatically waived for graduate assistants and, as such, may be declared on budgets as "matching funds" if appropriate and necessary. No graduate assistant has an automatic tuition "waiver", with the exception of LEQSF Superior Graduate Fellows. In that instance, tuition is declared as "matching funds" in the budget.
