Tuition Support for Grant-Funded GEs

Effective Fall 2014, the University will provide support to grants on which GEs are hired. In short, the labor index will be charged only three credits of tuition when the index is a grant and when the appointee is a research level III research fellow (GRF). The balance of the tuition will be charged to a non-grant index in the hiring unit. Hiring units with GEs supported on grants should consult their dean’s office to determine the index that will be used.   

BACKGROUND:

All students are required to enroll and complete at least 9 credits toward their degree in every term in which they hold a GE appointment.  Prior to fall 2014, the hiring unit is charged full-time tuition (9-16 credits), along with the University’s portion of mandatory fees and insurance premiums for each GE employed in fall, winter and spring. 

When employed as a G in the summer, the tuition and insurance are charged to the payroll index with a journal voucher. Tuition costs for those who take advantage of the summer sandwich tuition waiver (that is, those who are not employed as GEs during the summer) will continue to be charged to their academic program.

GE Level III is reserved for those doctoral level GEs who have advanced to candidacy in their program at least one term prior. By fall 2014, an identifier to indicate advancement will be visible in Banner (screen: SHANCRS).

For information about the academic benchmarks that lead to advancement, consult the individual doctoral program’s director of graduate studies or graduate coordinator.  General information on procedures leading to the doctoral degree can be found on the Graduate School website: http://gradschool.uoregon.edu/policies-procedures/doctoral

PROCESS:

Prior to fall term, hiring units with GEs supported on grants should consult their dean’s office to determine or create an alternate index against which the 6+ credits of tuition will be charged. The program code for the index must start with the same character as the program code of the grant.

Please contact Phil Davis in BAO Financial Services at at 6-3524 or pdavis@uoregon.edu if you have questions about this process.

Units may estimate the approximate tuition costs by referring to the tuition information posted on the Budget and Resource Planning website. Be sure to view the rates for the school/college/program in which the student is enrolled. The Tuition Code cited on the PRF should be selected from the Tuition Code Identification Table.

Tuition costs for those who take advantage of the summer sandwich tuition waiver (that is, those who are not employed as GEs during the summer) will continue to be charged to their academic program.
