Students may seek either academic apprentice appointments or part-time University staff positions. Graduate students may work up to 50% time during the academic year. Academic apprentice positions provide training for future careers in academic settings and are the largest source of graduate student support on campus. Graduate students may be appointed to a variety of apprentice titles. Students apply directly through their departments for academic apprentice appointments and through the Campus Learning Assistance Services for additional positions.
