Please note that teaching appointments are by semester only, and a separate graduate student appointment form must be completed for fall and spring semesters. Beginning Fall 2016, students are limited to 1.0 Full Time Equivalency (FTE) in teaching appointments. Students who surpass the 1.0 FTE limit must complete the online Graduate Student Teaching Appointment Petition form.  Upon completion of the online form, the student’s faculty advisor will be emailed a faculty petition. Both petitions must be filled out for consideration of additional teaching appointments.

All Spring 2021 RA Funding Authorizations Forms must be submitted by Monday, November 16, 2020 to ensure timely processing and payment. Completed forms should be emailed to Mark Rodriguez (mrod@optics.arizona.edu).  Students and Faculty must complete and sign the form before submission.
