Everyday resources while employed at the Steve Hicks School of Social Work (please bookmark this page for future reference):

Appointment Information Information about your current appointment: active/process, title, hours, dates, percent time. Look at this page and if there is any discrepancy, then contact your payroll office immediately.
Graduate Student Employment Information from the Office of Graduate Studies.
Health Insurance Waiver International students who have a continuous 20-hour appointment can request this health insurance waiver for the semester specified on the form only. Just like the out-of-state waiver, this form needs to be completed each semester for which you have a 20-hour appointment. For additional information, please see the International Office Insurance page.
Human Resource Services – Benefits If you are a new employee, you have 30 days from the official employment start date to make any changes on benefits coverage.
Out-of-State Tuition Waivers Waivers must be submitted every semester in which the student is employed 20 hours or more.
Parking If you are working 20 hours a week or more, you are eligible to purchase an “A” class parking permit. A memo is sent to P&T indicating you were eligible for that permit.
Paycheck Profile Information needs to be current at all times. This informs UT where you want your check to go to (bank account, check stub, etc.).
Payroll If you have questions about your paycheck, such as deductions, please call 471-5271. That
office can see your paycheck and explain what was deducted.
Time Sheets (optional) Time sheets are not required to be submitted in order to get paid. AI, TA and GRA positions are paid monthly. However, it is a good idea to keep track of the hours you work to make sure you’re not working more than what you’re being paid for. Some weeks you may work over your required hours, whereas in other weeks you may work fewer hours. If you want to use this time sheet form, it is simply to be used for you and your supervisor.
Tuition Reduction Benefit (TRB) for TA, AI, GRA Only TAs, AIs and GRAs are eligible for tuition reduction benefit.You can get complete information by visiting the link on the left and see how this works and amounts per semester.
Tuition Billing For questions about your tuition and fees bill, please call 512-475-7777.

All appointments are subject to the provisions of the Rules and Regulations of the Board of Regents and the Handbook of Operating Procedures of The University of Texas at Austin. All payments represent gross amounts and are subject to deductions as required by State and Federal law for Old-Age and Survivors Insurance and withholding for income tax.
