Registration Requirements for RA/TA’s

Just a reminder, as your RA or TA offer letter should have stated, you will need to be registered for a minimum of 10 credits (which is considered full-time for a graduate student) during Autumn, Winter and Spring quarters in order to be eligible for your RA/TA appointment. Summer quarter only 2 credits are required.

If you are an international student who has an RA appointment for autumn quarter, when you register you’ll need to select the ISHIP option. Then when your appointment is entered in the payroll system for autumn quarter it will switch to GAIP and you will not be charged for ISHIP.
