Summer Session 2011, upcoming one-week overlap, and staffing
Summer session 2011 planning materials will be distributed in late February or early March. If you have immediate questions regarding summer session curriculum please contact Assistant Dean Nanette Hanks (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Reminder: There will be a one-week overlap between Spring Semester 2011 and May Session 2011. May Session begins on May 23, 2011 and Spring Semester does not end until May 29, 2011. This overlap may have scheduling and staffing implications for departments if they employ international graduate students.
Most graduate teaching assistants will be allowed to exceed 40 hours of work during the week of May 23-May 29, making it possible for them to hold both a Spring Semester 2011 appointment and a May Session 2011 appointment. However, foreign nationals (including F1 and J1 student visa status) cannot exceed 40 hours of work during this one-week overlap under any circumstances, according to INS Regulations. Please keep this in mind as you begin planning for May Session 2011 staffing.
