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.
