Graduate assistants perform a variety of duties from teaching undergraduate classes to grading papers, to conducting research in laboratories. Teaching assistants receive special teaching skills by training through the Graduate School. All graduate students holding an assistantship (teaching TA or research RA) are considered Nevada residents for tuition purposes. Non-resident tuition is only waived for the duration of the assistantship.
As a TA or RA, you will receive a fee waiver on your bill – but it is your responsibility to make sure that the appropriate waivers are applied. Read the below information to prevent late fees on your account.
