GA Stipend Information

All GA appointments must meet the minimum stipend amount from the student’s academic program. Maximum GA stipends cannot exceed 50% FTE of the lowest paid full-time faculty member in the student’s academic department. GAs are not permitted to work more than 20 hours per week, regardless of the stipend amount. The Graduate College strongly encourages equitable stipends among GAs within the hiring department.
