Academic Employment

UC San Diego offers several types of employment to graduate students providing financial support, professional experience, and opportunities for career development.

Students earn a salary and, depending on the academic appointment, may have all, or part, of their Tuition & Fees and NRST paid on their behalf as a benefit of employment. In addition, students in qualifying appointments may be eligible to receive childcare reimbursement.
