Teaching Assistant and Graduate Research Assistant Benefits
Non-resident students who receive TA/GRA appointments qualify for in-state tuition during the terms for which they are registered and employed. Students must make a formal Resident Tuition Request each semester of employment. All TA appointments qualify for health insurance (medical and dental) and tuition payment/reimbursement commensurate with the percent-time of the appointment. International student employees with a 20-hour a week appointment qualify for a waiver of the Student Health Insurance. The waiver must be obtained before the 12th class day of each long semester, or the 4th class day of the summer session. The Tuition Waiver Request may be claimed online here.
