TA/GA/Fellows Tuition Remission

Improvements made to the Class 6 Teaching Assistant (TA), Graduate Assistant (GA), and Graduate Fellows (99610 class) remission application process provide a simpler submission process that is more manageable and intuitive. The elimination of paper forms combined with an automated payroll deduction process eliminates the need to print term bills and removes in-person traffic, resulting in a streamlined process. 

Our department does not receive an electronic report of eligible students when they are appointed. Eligible TAs, GAs, and Graduate Fellows are not required to self-identify via paper form.   

Additionally, payroll deduction requests for charges not covered by remission must be received online. Departments that want to make additional payments for other charges on the term bill should contact us. Please be prepared to complete a RT-100 Form online for Fellows if the department will pay term bill charges other than tuition.  

Steps for Rutgers units 

Departments overseeing Class 6 TAs, GAs, and Graduate Fellows should be mindful of the following: 

  • Ensuring TA, GA, and Graduate Fellow adherence to appointment dates  

  • Filing the student’s social security number  

  • Confirming that the correct general ledger/project string is used for the TA/GA appointment (this is where remission will be charged)
