RA, TA, PA and LSA Appointments
Fall and Spring Terms


Under Wisconsin Statute 36.27(3)(g), the contract with the Teaching Assistants' Association (TAA), and University policy, the University remits the full tuition for Research Assistants, Teaching Assistants, Program/Project Assistants and Lecturer Student Assistants, and the non-resident tuition for certain Instructional Academic Staff and University Fellows who hold eligible appointments.

Students are responsible for paying their segregated fees and any other fees such as the Official Document Fee, the International Student Fee and Late Initial Enrollment Fee, which must be paid by deferred due date (see information below), regardless of when the Bursar's Office is notified of the eligible appointment.

For additional information regarding the policy for graduate assistant payment of segregated and other fees, please click here http://www.bussvc.wisc.edu/bursar/lteTaa.html

Students who finish their degree in the middle of a term retain their tuition remission for that term, as long as they remain on payroll through the date that they receive their degree, for no less than a 33% appointment.

Students who withdraw in the middle of a term will lose their tuition remission if the duration of their appointment is not sufficient to meet the 33% for 4.5 months appointment requirement.


The following requirements determine graduate student eligibility for a full tuition remission/waiver based on a RA, TA, PA and LSA appointment.
