Deferred Pay for Graduate Assistantships

Graduate students with assistantships on a 9-month, monthly paid appointment may be eligible for pay deferral to have their assistantship pay allocated over 12 months. Full policy provisions and eligibility criteria are described in HR-219 Pay Periods and HR-105 Employment Documentation.

Elections for deferred pay must be made prior to the first pay cycle of the academic year and renewed each appointment year. To elect deferred pay, complete HR Form 269A Deferred Pay Option Election Form for Faculty and Graduate Assistantships  (PDF) and return it to your hiring department payroll/PAF processor.

Graduate students who intend to graduate at the end of an academic year are eligible to participate in this pay option and will receive the deferred pay over the summer post-graduation.
