Assistantships

Assistantships are a means to attract high-quality, full-time, graduate students and provide them with professional experiences while at UCF that will prepare them for their future work in teaching, research or other activities. Graduate students enrolled in fully online programs that exempt them from paying campus-based fees are not eligible for graduate assistantships.

  • The standard appointment is at 0.5 FTE (full, 20 hours per week) and either for the Academic Year (fall and spring semesters) or Calendar Year (fall, spring, and summer semesters; August 15 to August 14).
  • Students are assumed to be involved in their courses the other 20 hours per week.
  • 10 hour appointments (half, 0.25 FTE) are also possible, but are not recommended unless two such appointments are offered as part of a complete financial package.

Students are eligible for full financial support (stipend, full tuition remission and health insurance) only if they receive at least a single 0.5 FTE or two 0.25 FTE assistantship positions.

Assistantships awarded to students for performing duties that are outside of their program requirements are compensated per hour of work. GTA appointments of 0.5 FTE (20 hours per week) normally require teaching of no more than 2 courses or laboratories. All assistantship appointments of 0.25 FTE (10 hours per week) must be for duties that require, on average, 10 hours of work per week.

Bridge Funding Program

UCF's College of Graduate Studies is offering limited interim research support to faculty who are funding graduate assistantship students on extramural grants, but are expecting a gap in their funding stream. For eligibility requirements and application requirements see the Bridge Funding Application.

Best Practices

  • Offer competitive assistantships to high-quality, full-time students only, those making good academic progress, and those you want to attract to UCF. Do this early (February is best, March is acceptable, and usually April is too late).
  • It is important to provide an assistantship commensurate with your competition—compare yourself to other universities that your students apply to in terms of stipend and then do your best to provide that level of support. If you don’t know who those universities are, then ask applicants during the admission process—they will tell you.
  • It is worthwhile to provide fewer assistantships at higher stipends than try to stretch funds to all of your incoming students. Spreading out funds so that no one has adequate or competitive support simply gives you a reputation for being non-competitive and will affect the number of applications to your program over time. It will also give your students the impression that you do not care about them, an important factor in attrition from graduate programs.
  • In the student handbook for the program, it is imperative to include your expectations for student behavior while students are supported by the faculty or program. Explanations of your expectations as a program will go a long way toward decreasing student complaints and misunderstandings and toward receiving the kinds of professional behavior that you expect. Here are a few examples:
    • Do you require them to be present over holidays
    • Do you require them to report on their work assignments
    • Do you evaluate them and how often
    • What kinds of behavior would you consider unprofessional or subject to dismissal
    • Would they be expected to teach at night or on weekends or at regional campuses
  • Ensure that the workload is commensurate with the stipend. Normally, graduate assistants teach no more than one or two courses per semester.
  • It is important to view the assignments of each graduate student as an important part of the student’s professional training and ensure that students obtain assignments that will enable them to grow professionally. This should be part of the extracurricular activities that are identified ahead of time by a program to ensure that students receive training in the discipline.

Outside Employment

Graduate Studies' philosophy is that full-time graduate assistants with a full-time course load should not pursue outside employment. Programs may discourage graduate assistants from taking outside employment, but cannot prevent graduate assistants from doing so. Please indicate to assistants who choose to take outside employment that they will be held to the same standards in terms of their work and academic progress as others who do not.

Under no circumstances can international students take outside employment during the fall and spring semesters unless UCF Global has verified that there is a curricular connection with a UCF affiliate (for more information, see www.intl.ucf.edu/).

Full-time UCF employees, regardless of classification (Staff, A&P, other OPS, or other classifications) are prohibited from simultaneously receiving a graduate assistantship while working full-time.

Other Employee Classifications

Graduate assistantship students are not allowed to be simultaneously employed as any other UCF job code (undergraduate OPSSTU, adjunct faculty, OPSGRD, or A&P, Faculty, Staff, etc.).

Assistantship Titles

A UCF graduate assistant may be hired as:

Type Job Code Tuition Remission
GTA 9183, 9184, 9187 waiver or tuition payment
GRA 9181, 9182 waiver or tuition payment
GA 9186 waiver or tuition payment

UCF graduate assistantships are strictly defined as job codes 9181, 9182, 9183, 9184, 9186, and 9187. Please assign assistantship job codes to your students that are appropriate with their duties.

Assign your GTA students to instructional duties according to the university definitions for these positions. GTA students must complete all training requirements for their job code before they begin their assignments. Under no circumstances are students in GRA or GA job codes allowed to engage in instructional assignments.

Assistantship Job Code Assignment Instructional Assignment
Graduate Teaching Associate 9183 Instructor of record for undergraduate courses in the specific discipline in which the student has graduate-level expertise and 18 hours of graduate course work (cannot be the instructor of record for graduate courses). They should be attached to the courses in the Student Records Instructor Schedule. YES—serve as instructors of record
Graduate Teaching Assistant 9184 Teaching-related duties under the supervision of a faculty member. The student may assist a faculty member in any aspect of course instruction but cannot serve as the primary instructor of record. YES—do NOT serve as instructors of record
Graduate Teaching-Grader 9187 Grading papers or assisting a faculty member in the non-instructional aspects of course teaching. These students may have no direct instructional contact with students. YES—do NOT serve as instructors of record
Graduate Research Associate 9181 Research or research-related duties; this code is usually for those supported by by C&G funds; although not exclusively. NO
Graduate Research Assistant 9182 Research or research-related duties; this code is usually used for those supported by C&G funds; although not exclusively. NO
Graduate Assistant (contract) 9186 General educational administration duties NO

Nondegree-seeking students may be employed but may not be classified as graduate assistants. Others that do not meet criteria for being a graduate assistant should be hired as OPS (temporary) employees.

Graduate students can be hired into the OPSGRD job code; however, it is not an effective mechanism to attract students to your program. OPSGRD appointments do not qualify for tuition remission or health insurance coverage. Use of this job code does exclude graduate students from being assessed FICA taxes on their earnings. Students may not have assistantship and OPSGRD appointments concurrently.

University Standard Assistantship

Assistantships are standardized at 0.5 FTE (full-time, 20 hours per week) and 0.25 FTE (half-time, 10 hours per week) appointments. Assistantships are provided either for the Academic Year (fall and spring semesters) or Calendar Year (fall, spring and summer semesters; August 15 to August 14 next year).

Assistantships are accompanied by tuition remission (full for a 0.5 FTE appointment and half for 0.25 FTE appointment). See Tuition Remission for more information about this topic. See also Health Insurance for information about the Graduate Studies-paid health insurance coverage for qualifying assistantship and university fellowship students.

Full-time assistantships (.50 FTE) require students to perform assistantship assignments for 20 hours per week during the period of assignment. Half-time assistantships (.25 FTE) require students to perform assistantship assignments for 10 hours per week during the period of assignment. Additional compensation will be expected for service over semester breaks.

A graduate assistantship appointment may be less than .25 FTE (10 hours per week); however, students on such appointments will not be eligible for graduate tuition remission or Graduate Studies-paid health insurance coverage unless they have other qualifying assistantship appointments.

Assistantship Stipend

The University of Central Florida requires that all graduate assistantships be paid stipends in amounts commensurate with previous appointment averages in the program, but certainly greater than the university minimum stipend levels indicated below. Please pay more than these minimum stipend amounts if you hope to attract high-quality students to your program. Stipends for graduate assistants must be at a rate that is higher than minimum wage, commensurate with your competitor institutions.

UCF Minimum Stipend Levels Effective Fall 2016

Note: The minimum stipend for a Summer 2016 graduate assistantship (doctoral or master's) is $2,475.

For student appointments that are summer only and do not include the break before or after the summer semester, the minimum stipend amounts are based on .75 of the single semester rate to account for fewer pay periods in the semester.

Employment of International Students

According to INS regulations, graduate students who are on an F-1 or J-1 visa may accept employment on campus without prior INS approval as long as students are enrolled full-time and employment does not interfere with their studies. Off-campus employment, however, must be at locations affiliated with the university either through contractually funded projects or associated with the university curricula. Curricular Practical Training is authorized by the International Services Center only to students who qualify for Curricular Practical Training for off-campus employment.

On-campus employment is limited to no more than 20 hours per week while school is in session. Such employment may be full-time during vacation periods for students who are eligible and intend to register for the subsequent academic term. On-campus employment is not permitted after completion of the program of study, unless the student is issued a Form I-20A-B to begin a new program and intends to enroll for the next regular academic year, term, or session.

Students who received a bachelor's degree at one school and will start a master's degree at UCF are eligible to work during the summer at either the original school or UCF as long as a Form I-20A-B was issued for the new master's program.

International students on an F-1 visa are eligible for one year of optional practical training after completion of their program. This is a wonderful opportunity for international students to get practical experience while at the same time learning about the employment culture in the U.S. Please encourage your international students to consider this opportunity upon graduation.

Those who are on dependent visas, either F-2 or J-2 cannot be employed by the university in these visa statuses, and must change their visa status to F-1 or J-1 before they can be assigned duties as an OPS employee or graduate assistant. Also, those in H-1B visa categories cannot be enrolled full-time in graduate coursework or be employed as a graduate assistant without violating their visa status, since the H-1B visa is sponsored by an employing agency and requires them to work.

For more information about employing international students, contact the International Services Center at 407-823-2526 or visit their website at www.intl.ucf.edu.

Resignation Process

Graduate assistantship students are encouraged to tender a letter of resignation if they are leaving their position before the end of their assistantship contract (e.g., withdrawing from the university, changing from salary to wages or changing status from student employment to faculty or staff). The student submits the letter to the appropriate program supervisor or payroll representative.

The College of Graduate Studies recommends that you complete an Exit Form for Graduate Assistants when graduate assistants leave the university, transfer to another university, have stopped out for a period of time, or have filed a leave of absence with the university. A sample Exit Form is available at www.admin.graduate.ucf.edu in the Forms section.

Students leaving appointments early generally will owe charges for graduate tuition waivers received. It is strongly advised that you or the student contact gradassistantship@ucf.edu to determine what effect the end of the appointment will have. If the student has financial aid (i.e., student loan), the student should also contact a counselor in the Office of Student Financial Assistance (finaid@ucf.edu).

Termination Before End of Appointment

In some circumstances, a graduate assistant’s supervisor may find it necessary to terminate a graduate assistant before the end of the student’s appointment period. The reasons for a premature termination may include, but are not limited to:

  • Academic misconduct
  • Excessive absences
  • Misconduct in assigned duties
  • Breach of the UCF Golden Rule (code of conduct)

Except in cases of gross misconduct that require immediate termination, a supervisor must follow the procedure outlined below in order to end an appointment early.

  • Verbal warnings—The student must be given multiple specific verbal warnings indicating the problem and steps to correct it. The supervisor must keep written documentation, with dates, summarizing what was said to the graduate assistant and the graduate assistant’s response.
  • Written warnings—If the verbal warnings do not correct the problem, the supervisor must issue a written warning again stating the problem, corrective measures, and a time frame in which action must be taken. Both the graduate assistant and the supervisor should sign the document. The warning must include information indicating to the student the fiscal ramifications of the premature end of the appointment (i.e., loss of graduate tuition waiver and assistantship funds) and the effective date of the end.
  • End appointment—If the problem persists beyond the agreed upon action date, then the supervisor must decide whether to end or continue the appointment. To end an appointment, the supervisor must notify the departmental payroll representative so the required Human Resources paperwork can be submitted. The student must be notified of the end of appointment action.

Assessment of Graduate Assistants

Assessment plays an important role in assisting graduate students in their professional development. Faculty should evaluate their graduate assistants each semester and provide feedback and guidance for improvement.

The College of Graduate Studies recommends that this assessment be documented in the faculty supervisor’s records. The assessment should be discussed with the student, and the student should be given an opportunity to respond to the assessment in writing.

The Graduate Council Program Review Committee has adopted a template that may be used by programs in providing annual progress assessments of their doctoral students. The program may use any format for annual progress assessments that they choose, but annual progress assessments are required for all doctoral students.

The section on Graduate Teaching Requirements specifically addresses assessment of the supervision of GTAs.

Hiring Procedures

UCF requires graduate departments to follow university-approved standards and procedures in hiring their graduate assistants.

Hiring of graduate assistants must be processed through the College of Graduate Studies (Millican Hall 230) and the Office of Human Resources. The Graduate College requires that an Assistantship Agreement and ePAF be submitted with any accompanying information. It is important to have all of the information assembled before entry and to have provided this to your staff.

See the Graduate Financial Assistance Schedule for the relevant deadlines. Our goal is for the faculty, staff and offices around campus to work together to ensure that graduate assistants get paid promptly and accurately. Hiring submitted after the deadlines result in delayed first payment to graduate assistants at the beginning of the semester.

Changing Assistantship Agreements

CAUTION: Changes to existing assistantships may affect your student’s tuition remission status, possibly causing them to be removed in the middle of the term. Please make sure you understand the consequences of assistantship changes prior to submitting them to the College of Graduate Studies.

Policy Guide

UCF requires graduate departments to follow university-approved standards and procedures in hiring their graduate assistantship students. Contact Human Resources (www.hr.ucf.edu) for this information:

  • University hiring procedures and training, I-9 process, and preparation of new hire and rehire documents. Deliver all paper hiring documents directly to the Human Resources office, unless your college has a different practice. College of Graduate Studies documents should be attached to the ePAF form or sent to gradassistantship@ucf.edu (e.g., Assistantship Agreement, Teaching Qualifications Form for GTA 9183, Supplemental Assignment Form, GTA Performance Assessments, and Late Assistantship Justification Form).
  • Federal tax guidelines and FICA exemption eligibility for graduate student employees
  • Graduate assistantship students are not eligible for participation in the UCF employee benefits program or the State of Florida Retirement Program.
  • Payroll guidelines
  • Criminal history background check for new graduate assistantship students (and those who have not had university employment in the previous 12 months)

Critical Dates for Assistantship Processing

See the Schedule for a detailed list of important dates for the 2017-2018 year.

For the Summer 2017 assistantship hiring dates, see Assistantships Schedule Final Deadlines Flyer 2016-2017.

For the 2017-20118 assistantship hiring dates, see Assistantships Schedule Final Deadlines Flyer 2017-2018.

The “Last day to submit financial support documentation” dates will be strict deadlines for submitting the documentation for supported students, including assistantship agreements with tuition waiver and payment authorizations.

Late documentation will be considered on a case-by-case basis only for extenuating circumstances. Valid justifications include assistantship appointments for:

  • additional course sections that are added late
  • grants and contracts that get approved for funding after the assistantship processing deadline
  • late resignation of a previous appointee
  • extenuating I-9 circumstances
  • required, in-person interviews
  • international students arriving late due to unexpected visa delays

Assistantship ePAFs submitted late for valid reasons must attach the Late Assistantship Justification Form explaining the nature of the justification. Please include the details of the justification. The form must be signed by your Director or College Associate Dean, approving the late justification. Agreements and ePAFs submitted after the deadline with missing or incomplete Late Assistantship Justification forms will be recycled. The “Last day to complete assistantship hiring” is the final deadline even for exceptions.

Graduate Financials System

The Graduate Financials System in the GradInfo intranet is used by hiring departments and programs to manage the funding support for their graduate students. In this system programs make assistantship offers, create assistantship agreements and have them signed electronically by hiring officials and students, manage their GTA waiver budget, and do oversight of their funded students.

Access and training requests for the Graduate Financials System should be sent to Jennifer Parham at gradassistantship@ucf.edu (823-4337).

Assistantship Offers

Graduate programs are required to enter assistantship offers for newly admitted students in Assistantship Offers in the Graduate Financials System. You may also enter assistantship offers for continuing graduate students in Assistantship Offers. The College of Graduate Studies sends official financial offers for you via e-mail. Although Graduate Studies sends the e-mail offers, you make the decisions on the details of the offers.

The following tutorials provide step-by-step instructions about assistantship offers. Questions regarding assistantship offers may be directed to gradassistantship@ucf.edu.

Assistantship Offers Tutorials

Assistantship Agreements

Starting with Fall 2012, assistantship agreements are created in the Graduate Financials System. The new agreement webform replaces the previous PDF agreement file. Assistantship data entered through Assistantship Offers and Awards in the Graduate Financials System flow into the Agreement webform. Staff can collect electronic signatures of DAL, approvers, and the student through an online approval workflow, rather than printing and circulating a paper agreement. When an agreement is Ready for EPAF status, staff save the approved agreement PDF from the Graduate Financials System to their computer and attach it to the assistantship ePAF Form in PeopleSoft.

Assistantship Agreement Guides and Handouts

Supplemental Assignment

Policy Guide: Supplemental Assignment

In rare circumstances, students may be granted more than a full-stipend assistantship. Requests for this exception must be submitted using the Supplemental Assignment Form. Supplemental Assignment approval requires the student to have an academic review and possibly consultation with the student’s graduate program director, approval from both the department and the college, and then approval from Graduate Studies. For nonresident alien students on F-1 visas, guidance and verification from International Affairs and Global Strategies (IAGS) is required before allowing the student to begin the assistantship.

The Supplemental Assignment Form may be completed for all terms of the assistantship appointment; however, only the first semester is considered approved if the appointment extends for multiple semesters.

Please note that with supplemental assignment approval, students hired in the Graduate Assistant (9186) role may be appointed for a total of 30 hours per week maximum on a single appointment or on a combination of assistantship appointments (e.g. 20 hours per week GA and 10 hours per week GTA).

Supplemental Assignment Requirements

Period Full-stipend Assistantships Supplemental Assignment Approval Required Restrictions for Nonresident Alien Students on F-1 or J-1 Visa
Fall .50 FTE (20 hours per week) FTE for all appointments combined exceeds .50 FTE Not permitted to work more than 20 hours per week
Spring .50 FTE (20 hours per week) FTE for all appointments combined exceeds .50 FTE Not permitted to work more than 20 hours per week
Summer .50 FTE (20 hours per week) Not required GTAs and GRAs may work up to 40 hours per week (assuming the student is “in status” and has been asked by the employer to work the hours). Students on GA (9186) positions will be approved for a maximum of 30 hours.
Official school breaks* 1.0 FTE (40 hours per week) Not required GTAs and GRAs may work up to 40 hours per week (assuming the student is “in status” and has been asked by the employer to work the hours). Students on GA (9186) positions will be approved for a maximum of 30 hours.

*Includes semester breaks in December/January, April/May, and August, as well as spring break.

Completing the Supplemental Assignment Form

The Supplemental Assignment Form should be completed by the hiring department and approved by the student's academic department to ensure that the additional hours will not interfere with the student's academic performance and progress. This form should not be completed by the student.

Student Information: Make sure the student's name and EmpliID are correct.

Hiring Unit Information:

  • Unit 1: Main assistantship assignment type. Check the assignment type and include the standard hours.
  • Unit 2: Additional assistantship assignment that makes the student's total standard hours exceed 20 hours per week. Check the assignment type and include the standard hours. If there is only one assisistantship assignment and it will exceed 20 hours, then complete Unit 1 section only.
  • Contact name and e-mail: This information is required from the hiring officials in order to notify the hiring department when the College of Graduate Studies makes a decision about the request.
  • Tuition Remission: This section indicates which unit(s) will be covering tuition remission for the student and the percentage that will be covered by each unit. Check the correct percentage.
  • Academic Review and Approval: This section should be completed by the hiring department and approved by the student's academic department to ensure that the additional hours will not interfere with the student's academic progress. Please provide an explanation for every answer that you check.

The student should be able to give you the names of the thesis/dissertation adviser and graduate program director. Send the form by e-mail attachment to the student's thesis/dissertation adviser, if applicable, or to the graduate program director.

Questions about completing this form should be sent to gradassistantship@ucf.edu.

Reviewing Supplemental Assignment Approval in PeopleSoft

Navigation: Menu > GRAD Custom > UCF Graduate Summary > Financials Summary

When Supplemental Assignment requests are approved, Graduate Studies enters the approval in PeopleSoft Comments. You can view this record for an individual student in the “Assistantship Supplemental Assignments” section on the Financials Summary webpage.

Assistantships by Term Calendar

Assistantship start and end dates should fall within the following assistantship term calendar, in order to be properly reported for the terms. For example, if you are appointing a student on a fall/spring assistantship, the start date could be August 24 and the end date could be May 6. If you are appointing a student on an annual assistantship, the start date should be August 15 or later. You may, of course, have different start/end dates for your fall/spring or single term assistantships; however, you should use this term calendar to plan your assistantships. With this calendar, “break appointments” are just other, shorter appointments within the broader term dates.

Assistantships by Term Calendar

Term From Date To Date
Fall August 15 December 31
Spring January 1 May 9
Summer May 10 August 14

Start or Renew Assistantships in Fall Term

All assistantships must start or renew with Fall term each year.

Semester Break Appointments

Semester break appointments are the periods when classes are not in session at the university. These include the periods in December/January, Spring Break, April/May, and August. Dates for the semester break may vary, so you should consult with Human Resources Records for these dates.

You should clearly explain expectations for assistantship appointments to your students. Multiple-semester assistantship contracts may include additional funds to include break times. Another option is an additional assistantship agreement for the break time only; however, you should be careful not to exceed 40 hours per week total (1.0 FTE).

ePAF Attachment Requirements

The College of Graduate Studies requires the following graduate forms to be attached to the student's assistantship ePAF form:

  • Assistantship Agreement
  • Teaching Qualifications Form for GTA 9183 (Associate)
  • Supplemental Assignment Form (as needed)
  • Late Assistantship Justification Form (as needed)

If Graduate Studies receives ePAFs without required attachments, we will recycle the ePAF with a comment indicating what attachments are needed.

Completing the Teaching Qualifications - Graduate Teaching Associate (Job Code 9183) Form

Please complete the Teaching Qualifications for GTA 9183 Form with the student's first GTA 9183 assistantship agreement and for subsequent GTA 9183 agreements if the student's instructor assignment changes or the teaching discipline changes.
