Student academic appointments are part-time positions that usually require 15–20 hours of work per week. These positions include associate instructors, faculty assistants, graduate assistants, and research assistants. The IU GradGrants Center maintains a list of student academic appointment vacancies on its website.
Student academic appointments at 37.5 percent FTE (15 hours per week) or higher include graduate student health insurance and a College fee remission. College fee remissions can be used only for coursework related to your College degree; they cannot be applied toward second degrees outside of the College or to recreational coursework. College fee remissions typically cover more than 90 percent of the cost of tuition and fees, but they do not cover mandatory or special course fees.
The Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty and Academic Affairs oversees policies regarding student academic appointments, which are detailed in the Handbook for Student Academic Appointees.
