Graduate Assistants

Prerequisites

In order to participate in payroll deduction, graduate assistants should have completed the employment process and registered for classes. International graduate assistants should have also consulted with their department regarding their payment options for international health insurance.

Payments

Payments may be made in three equal deductions for regular sessions (fall or spring). The amount of each payment is determined by taking the total balance owed for the session, subtracting all charges that will be paid by the graduate assistant's department, and dividing the remaining charges by the number of deductions to be made.

Graduate assistants may go to UAConnect and select these links: Self Service > Student Center to view their account summary. Graduate assistants who are unsure of the type (and extent) of charges covered by their assistantship or who require information regarding payment options for international health insurance, should contact their department.

Spouses and Dependents

If a graduate assistant is using payroll deduction to pay a spouse or dependent's student account, both the employee and student information portions of the Payroll Deduction Authorization form will need to be completed. A spouse or dependent should be registered for classes before the graduate assistant submits the completed and signed form to the Treasurer's Office.

Appointed Employees

Prerequisites
