A graduate assistantship is a new employment position and requires all new employee steps, including a graduate assistantship offer letter of acceptance.
Upon offering the graduate assistantship, the department making the appointment must have the student sign the graduate assistantship offer (acceptance/denial) letter. The letter may be submitted to the student in person, by mail, fax or e-mail. An Electronic Personnel Action Form (EPAF) should then be initiated by the department upon receiving the signed graduate assistantship offer letter of acceptance from the student.
