Policies on Outside Employment

Employment outside of the research assistantship or teaching assistantship is prohibited for full-time graduate students in the Department of Chemistry during the academic year. Exceptions can jeopardize the tax status of all graduate students, and thus any opportunity must be reviewed by the Research Advisor, the Graduate Program Committee, and the Associate Dean for Administrative and Financial Affairs.

Outside employment is prohibited if summer support is provided. If summer support is not available, the student may seek outside employment with permission of his/her Research Advisory Committee.
