Does the minimum stipend rate apply to GAs working in administrative offices?

 

Yes. However, the distribution of payment may vary by office. For example, one office might pay its GA for fall and spring semesters but not during the winter break, but will distribute the GA’s paycheck without interruption for the full academic year. We encourage all GAs to learn how their assigned office will distribute payment.

The minimum stipend rate policy does NOT apply to Athletics GAs or Greek Life GAs. These GAs should contact Taryn Gall in Athletics or Chloe Soloman in Greek Life for details on the policies that apply to them.
