The Graduate School, in conjunction with the Bursar’s Office, has been working on developing a fully integrated centralized process to create and authorize assistantship contracts and manage PAF and tuition remission entries. We will be rolling out the first phase of this project – a contract creation and approval system that will replace all current methods of contract creation – in February 2018. At that time, the current online contract will be retired and replaced by the new contract tool which all departments will be required to use for creating new contracts. Training sessions for this new tool are currently being offered. Email amg-g@vt.edu if you are interested in attending this training.
