Graduate Contracts

2017-2018 Fiscal Year

The following are implementation forms for graduate assistantship, graduate hourly, and graduate fellowship appointments. Please review the Institutional Policies governing the awarding of graduate student contracts.

Institutional Implementation Commitments must be submitted by the appointing department/division each term. The commitment form (spreadsheet) specifies, in detail, how CSM is to financially implement the student appointee agreement.The "Student Agreement" is incorporated within the RA/TA and Hourly Implementation forms.

The completed implementation form should be emailed to Human Resources at

The implementation form must also be signed (wet signature) by the student appointee. Originals of the completed and signed form should reside in the department/division with a copy sent by campus mail to Human Resources.

As Graduate Fellowship Awards are made without the expectation of services being rendered, there is no need to complete a Student Agreement form to implement a graduate fellowship award.

For more information on contracts, please contact Jahi Simbai in the Graduate Office:, x2221.
