Schedule of Stipend Payments
Assistantship stipends are paid monthly. For the Fall Semester, graduate assistants will be paid 1/5 of the semester stipend at the end of August, September, October, November, and December. For the Spring semester, graduate assistants will receive 1/5 of the semester stipend at the end of January, February, March, April and May. For the Summer Semester, graduate assistants will be paid 1/2 of the semester stipend at the end of June and July.
New graduate students will not receive a stipend at the end of August, but will receive 2/5 of the stipend at the end of September. New students should meet with Laurinda Benner as soon as they arrive on campus to complete all paperwork associated with payments. Students will need to bring proof of citizenship (social security card, birth certificate, or passport) in order to be officially entered into the University system.
Fellows are also paid once a month, on the last day.
If a payday falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or a holiday, paychecks are issued on the preceding full working day. Paychecks are obtained at the Office of the Bursar, Shields Building or may be direct deposited to the student's account in a bank.
