Payroll Policy and Procedure Manual
Section 300: Payment of Graduate Student Employees
Effective: 01/01/2001
Revised: 12/27/2011

    Section 300 covers payments made to Graduate Assistants and explains how graduate tuition remission expenses are distributed to department funds.

    There are several “Graduate” employee types at OSU.; Only the Teaching and Research Assistants are eligible for tuition remissions.

    1. Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA)
    2. Graduate Research Assistant (GRA)
    3. Clinical Fellows
    4. Postdoctoral Scholar

    Graduate assistant students may also work as student employees during summer session and the academic year in addition to their Graduate Assistantship.  If a graduate assistant on less than .49 FTE takes on extra duties, the total assistantship plus salary or hourly pay from any location within the Oregon University System shall not exceed the equivalent of .49 FTE for any term.  Doing so jeopardizes the student’s assistantship eligibility.

    The following charts provide summaries of data for Graduate Employment positions during the academic year and summer.
