Policy Statement

Student Academic Appointments

Student appointments must be appropriate to the student’s qualifications and academic programs. Eligibility requires continuing progress towards a degree. Student appointments are necessarily part-time.

  • Associate Instructors

    This title is used for graduate students who are part-time appointees and who engage in activities typical of a teacher. An Associate Instructor is responsible for assigning grades for at least a portion of a course and has direct contact with students. Typical activities include—but are not necessarily limited to—lecturing, tutoring, and laboratory instruction.

  • Other Student Academic Personnel

    Students hold positions as Research Assistants, as Graduate Assistants, as Undergraduate Assistants, and as Faculty Assistants. All student appointments are part time and temporary.
