New Policy Surrounding Employment of Graduate Students

As announced by Provost Glover this past summer, all Ph.D. students are to be appointed at .50 FTE (half-time, 20 hours per week). The Graduate School has revised the “Principles for Employing Graduate Students at the University of Florida” document to reflect the policy change. The updated document contains information on the types of employment, eligibility, compensation, and FTE and waivers that should be considered when hiring graduate students.
