Summer Appointments

Graduate Assistants must enroll for a minimum of one graduate credit during one of the summer sessions only if both of the following apply:

  • The student’s initial appointment starts in summer.
  • The student has no prior enrollment in their current graduate program (i.e. is newly admitted to the program).

Some Graduate Assistants may be required to maintain full-time enrollment in summer in order to comply with Federal Financial Aid rules or federal immigration law. Graduate Assistants required to enroll full-time during summer must enroll for a minimum of four credits.
