New Graduate Assistants: GAs must be onboarded by their College or department using the approved PeopleAdmin process. Once authorized to begin working, Graduate Assistants will receive information regarding the PA Act 153 background clearances.
Returning Graduate Assistants: All changes such as intra-departmental transfers, changing in funding sources or student status group, separations, and reactivations must be submitted using the Graduate Assistant Update Form.
As of Summer Semester 2021, the Student Stipend Form will no longer be accepted to process GA onboarding or stipend updates. This guide contains detailed information regarding the approved academic year rates, the Graduate Assistant pay schedule, and updates to the Graduate Assistant hiring process.
