Benefits for TA1s and RA1s

Graduate students who serve as teachers of record (TA1s) or externally funded researchers (RA1s) may be eligible for benefits.

Student Parking Decals Benefit

Parking Services has one parking permit option this year for qualified graduate students. The Graduate School will pay $225 towards your parking permit.

Procedure

  • Qualifying students will order a student parking decal online, and the student's account will be automatically billed for the reduced cost of the permit. If you do not see the discounted options, that means (1) you have already purchased a parking permit, or (2) you are not on the list of qualifying students. Feel free to call Parking Services at 254-710-7275 to verify your status in their system.
  • Decals will be available for pick-up in Clifton Robinson Tower at the Parking and Transportation Services counter immediately after the online order.
Meal Credits Benefit (for Teachers of Record only)
    This benefit provides five free meals each Fall and Spring semester, valid only at the University's residential dining facilities: Brooks, Collins, Memorial, Penland, and the new East Village Dining Commons. Residential dining benefits are intended to encourage TORs to interact with their students outside of the classroom. Please note that these credits allow you, the graduate student, to eat for free while dining with your students. They cannot be used to purchase meals for others. For information about opening hours and menus, please visit: Residential Dining.

Procedure

  • Qualifying TORs will receive a notice to pick up their meal cards after the 12th class day.
  • This benefit is only available during the Fall and Spring semesters. Please keep the card that is issued to you in the Fall semester as it will automatically be refilled for the Spring semester.
  • Note: You will only receive one card each year, so be careful not to lose it.
Questions or difficulties in acquiring these benefits should be addressed to Candice Prose, Assistant to the Vice Provost and Dean, Graduate School (254-710-4060).
