Graduate Assistant appointments on general funds and Agriculture Federal appropriations will be closely monitored to assure that administrative areas do not exceed their assigned allocation of grants-in-aid. Most administrative areas have purchased permanent grants-in-aid "slots" for permanently funded graduate assistantships. Financial Officers are required to report on total general fund graduate assistantships appointed and to account for all grant-in-aids used, with a budget reallocation required for any grants-in-aid used which exceed the administrative area's permanent "slots". For determining the impact on available grants-in -aid, graduate assistants who are classified as 601 Ph.D. students will use 1/3 of a permanent slot.
