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 and 5% fringe to the University. The University will pay the student through the normal stipend process. The GA/I will be expected to work in the internship work environment 20 hours per week.

Further information about graduate assistant/intern appointments is available in the Assistantship section of this catalog.
