Adding Graduate Hourly jobs
Although the Graduate College does not require summer registration to hold a summer assistantship, a minimum of 3 hours registration is required to receive a summer tuition waiver. Students receiving an assistantship must maintain a minimum registration through the end of the term in order to retain the waiver.
Students who are appointed with a graduate assistantship during the summer must meet the summer graduate assistant tuition waiver guidelines to receive a summer waiver which requires a student to hold the 1) appropriate FTE and 2) be appointed for a minimum of 41 calendar days.
NOTE: Students who are not enrolled for at least 3 credit hours during the summer will have FICA and OASDI (Social Security) taxes deducted from their earnings.
All Graduate tuition and fee waivers are taxable unless exempt under the Internal Revenue Code. Code IRC §117 allows exemption from taxation of tuition and fees for waivers above $5,250 for individuals conducting teaching or research activities. Students who held an assistantship during the Spring term will receive the same type of tuition waiver in the summer if they do not hold a qualifying summer graduate assistant appointment.
