A special category of graduate assistant, designated as a graduate assistant/intern (GA/I), provides opportunities for University offices or departments, community companies or agencies, or other appropriate external sponsors to involve graduate students as academic assistants/interns in “real life” experiences related to their fields of study. The department/agency of service will provide a stipend to the University, which will be paid to the student through the normal stipend process. Remission of instructional fees will be made in the manner described above under Assistantships. The GA/I will be expected to work in the internship work environment 20 hours per week.
Further information about graduate assistant/intern appointments may be obtained from the College of Graduate Studies.
