12.7.1 Eligibility for assistantship awards
Students who are in good academic standing (not on probation) are eligible to receive financial aid in the form of a graduate, teaching, or research assistantship. Individual degree programs are responsible for the recommendation of the award of assistantships, with final approval from the Dean of Research and Graduate Studies. Students who earn a semester GPA of less than a 3.0 may renew or continue an assistantship in subsequent semesters only if their cumulative GPA is more than 3.0. Graduate students on probation (see 10.3.7.b.) are ineligible to hold an assistantship.
