This revision will treat research assistants in the same manner as teaching assistants and teaching fellows regarding SCH (semester credit hour) enrollment as a condition of summer employment. This will ensure both equality of treatment and prevent students from enrolling in excessive SCH as a condition of employment rather than for pedagogical purposes. Effective 10/10/2011
