Termination of Graduate Assistants

Termination of Graduate Assistants is guided by Boise State policy #7170 which allows for two types of termination:

Automatic termination. This occurs when (1) the graduate assistant completes the degree, (2) the graduate assistant voluntarily withdraws or is administratively withdrawn from the degree program, or (3) the graduate assistance resigns the graduate assistantship.

Termination for cause. The can occur for reasons such as unsatisfactory performance of work obligations, unsatisfactory academic performance, unsatisfactory degree progress, violation of the Boise State Student Code of Conduct, or any other cause of similar magnitude as determined by the Dean of the Graduate College.

In the event of termination, the graduate assistant’s salary will be paid through the last day worked, insurance will be paid through the end of the month of the last day worked, and tuition and fees will remain credited to the student’s account (unless the termination occurs prior to the first day of classes for the semester).

A graduate assistant has the right to appeal termination following procedures established by Boise State University.
