General Terms and Conditions Form

I accept the Graduate Assistant (GA) placement offered by National Louis University.

I understand that failure to comply with the terms and conditions of the Graduate Assistantship may result in immediate termination from or reduction of award received through the Graduate Assistant Program.

I understand the terms and conditions of the Graduate Assistantship are subject to change with notice. Including, but not limited to; continuous eligibility, changes in plan or hours eligible to work, funding amounts, etc.

NLU can require a student to terminate participation in GA due to the receipt of other financial aid, which exceeds the student's financial need. While every effort will be made to adjust the other forms of aid and to notify all parties in advance of such an exigency, on some occasions it may be necessary to terminate a student from GA without advance notice.

NLU may also require cessation of a student's participation in GA if NLU's funding allocation is exhausted, if the student fails to enroll at least a half-time regular student in an eligible program, if the student obtains employment directly with NLU or if other terms, conditions and criteria are not being met.

By typing my name below, I certify that I have read and understand the terms, conditions and responsibilities of being a Graduate Assistant Student Employee and I agree to abide by these conditions and listed in all GA hiring forms, the student guidebook and all HR policies and procedures.

Date of Hire: (required)
Note: Per the Illinois Unemployment Insurance guidelines, any work positions that are paid and classified as student employment, such as Federal Work-Study, College Employment, Graduate Assistant and Harrison Fellow, etc., are not eligible for unemployment compensation, once the position has ended. Participation in the Federal Work-Study program does not constitute bona fide National Louis University employment status. Therefore, when you are no longer participating in the student employment program, you would not be eligible to request or receive unemployment compensation.
