Full-time students are expected to engage in their studies on a full-time basis. All doctoral students are considered full-time students and are assessed fees according to Schedule A of the doctoral degree tuition fees schedule. Full-time students are eligible for graduate scholarships and fellowships. Normally, teaching assistantships (TAs) and research assistantships (RAs) are limited to full-time students.
Graduate programs may articulate specific limitations regarding concurrent paid employment as consistent with the definition of full-time study. Recipients of TAs must adhere to the appropriate union's regulations governing number of hours worked while holding a TA.
