Graduate Appointments, Employment, and Benefits

Ohio University abides by the Council of Graduate Schools Resolution Regarding Graduate Scholars, Fellows, Trainees, and Assistants. When you accept an offer of funding for the next academic year, you and the graduate program are entering into an obligation that both are expected to honor. Students are under no obligation to respond to offers of financial support prior to April 15. Withdrawing an acceptance of financial support after April 15 commits the student to obtain a written release from the program before accepting an offer from a different program or institution. Refer to the Resolution for additional conditions affecting funding offers.

  • Please be sure to read and understand all Graduate Appointment Information and Policies before accepting an appointment.
  • You must complete the appropriate employment forms. Refer to your appointment letter for instructions on how to complete all necessary paperwork.
  • Students with an F-1 visa who are offered a Graduate Appointment and do not have a US Social Security number (SSN) must apply for one after arrival on campus. Additional information is available through International Student and Faculty Services.
