M.A. graduate assistants may receive a maximum of six semesters of support and continue to be employed for those six semesters provided that the evaluations completed each semester are positive. Ph.D. graduate assistants receive five years of support and continue to be employed for those five years if the evaluations completed each semester are positive. Graduate assistants who are making insufficient progress in their program, who fail to fulfill their teaching, tutoring, research, or program duties at an adequate level, or who violate academic integrity rules and regulations may have their assistantship terminated. In the event of negative evaluations, the Graduate Program Director or the Chair of the Department may terminate support.
