Graduate assistantships are awards given to students who are working toward a master’s degree, a specialist in education degree, or the doctoral degree. The stipend associated with this award is for a maximum of halftime duties. Graduate assistants with half-time duties for two semesters are granted remission of 100% of the instructional fee (the out of state surcharge may also be waived) and 50% of the basic general fee for the period of appointment and for the summer session immediately preceding or following the year of appointment. Winter term is excluded. The student will also be required to pay technology, facilities, metro, and student center fees. A tuition waiver and stipend for a graduate assistantship can vary with the work expectations varying proportionally. For instance a student might receive half of a tuition waiver and half of a normal stipend, and would be expected to work half the hours.
