TA/GSR Information

TA/GSR Information

Most students will serve as a Reader, Teaching Assistant (TA), or Graduate Student Researcher (GSR) during their time at UCD.

Positions at UC Davis are assigned as a certain percentage of Full-Time Employment (FTE), the most common appointments being 25% FTE and 49% FTE. These percentages are used to determine your salary as well as fee waivers which kick in at 25%.

Note: The university does not allow students to work more than 75% of full-time in a quarter. This is cumulative time, therefore you could not work as a 50% GSR and 50% TA in the same quarter. You would need to adjust your total time to be 75% FTE or less.

Each position carries benefits for student employees beyond their salary and those benefits are laid out below.
