FTE Information

GAs are appointed. As such, their reported hours may not be reduced in most cases. During periods where a GA is concurrently enrolled, total on-campus appointment may not exceed 26.4 hours per week (0.66 FTE). International GAs on F-1 or J-1 visas are subject to additional restriction: their appointment may not exceed 20 hours per week (0.50 FTE) while they are concurrently enrolled.

GAs appointed at 0.66 FTE cannot be compensated over their FTE except during winter or summer.  GAs appointed at less than 0.66 that work hours above their designated FTE must be paid via supplemental compensation. A GA may also hold multiple appointments so long as the total FTE does not exceed the restrictions.

The University of Arizona has approved four possible FTE’s and maximum payable hours for GAs.
