EDP Student Employment

The Department of Educational Psychology offers teaching assistant and assistant instructor positions to Educational Psychology graduate students each semester. These positions are primarily available to those students who are second-year-and-beyond. Recipients of half-time teaching or research assistantships are eligible for an exemption of the out-of-state portion of their tuition.

Student appointments as TA's, AI's, or GRA's may not exceed 20 hours per week during the first two long-term semesters of graduate study (or for international students in any semester) at UT-Austin. Appointments may not exceed 30 hours per week during subsequent long-session semesters. Exceptions to this policy require approval of the Graduate Adviser and Graduate Dean. Summer session TA/AI appointments are commensurate with the level of assigned duties and may be up to full-time.

TA's, AI's, & GRA's may not be appointed for more than fourteen long-term semesters at any one of these graduate student employee titles or combination of titles. Graduate student employees must also be registered for at least nine semester graduate hours during each long-term semester and for at least three semester graduate hours during any summer term.
