University Council approved a new policy governing the additional employment of graduate assistants:
Unless specified otherwise in the assistantship agreement contract, graduate students on full assistantships are not prohibited from seeking additional employment (restrictions may apply to international students). Students should consult with their academic advisor and/or assistantship supervisor as applicable regarding the fulfillment of their assistantship and graduate study responsibilities. Students must notify the Graduate School about any additional employment, including the period of employment, name and contact of employer, and job title or short description of duties.
The Graduate School is developing an new application for students to report additional employment. In the meantime, students on graduate assistantships must notify the Graduate School by email. The email should be addressed to Dr. Karen DePauw, email@example.com, and include:
- Student name
- Student ID number
- Department and academic level
- Name of assistantship supervisor
- Information about additional employment such as period of employment, name and contact of employer, and job title or short description of duties.
