Summary: Graduate Student Academic Appointments
Academic apprentice positions provide the single largest source of UCSB graduate student support. They also constitute
an important aspect of graduate training under the guidance of UCSB faculty. All students who receive academic
appointment positions must maintain continuous enrollment and remain within normative time to degree. Students who
have exceeded the time limit for completion of the master's degree (four years) are also not eligible to hold academic
appointment positions.
To be eligible for any academic appointment, graduate students must be:
Currently registered and enrolled in at least 8 units (12 units is the normal load)--enrollment in at least 8 units is
required for entry into the GSFR system for fee-remission credits;
In good academic standing (i.e., 3.0 GPA; fewer than 12 units of unfinished coursework--defined as Incomplete
(I), not on academic probation or subject to dismissal);
Chosen for academic appointment on the basis of high scholastic standing;
Certified as having language proficiency in spoken English if their native language is not English, PRIOR to the
department's making the offer. (After making an appointment offer, a department is obligated to compensate the
academic student employee at the promised rate, regardless of the student's language proficiency.)
Appointment or reappointment must be for a period of one year or less. Graduate students holding these academic
appointments should be under the direction of a UCSB faculty member. Graduate students in teaching appointments may

degree students are not eligible for a student academic appointment. You will find additional information regarding
