Graduate Student Permission to Work Request
Graduate students are expected to be full-time students conducting their studies and research. On occasion, another funding opportunity may arise. When that situation occurs, permission to receive additional remuneration must be requested and approved before the work begins. PhD and MFA students may work no more than 20 hours per week from all sources, including assistantships. Read full policy.
TGS approval is required ONLY if any one of these thresholds are exceeded:
- Student will work more than 10 hours/week
- Time period of service is more than one month
- Compensation is $600 or more
