Assistantship Health Contribution

A health contribution is available to those graduate assistants in the fall and spring who meet these criteria each semester:

  1. appointed to a 25% (10 hours per week) or more assistantship (GTA, GRA, GSA) by the end of the regular add/drop period and
  2. hold CSU health insurance and
  3. are resident-instruction graduate students enrolled in 5 credits or more

The student does not need to apply for this benefit. A report will identify all qualifying students. A health insurance contribution will be applied to the student's account and taxed through payroll approximately one week after the end of the regular add/drop period.

The health insurance contribution amount to be applied for qualifying students is:

  • $689.00 in fall, and again in the spring to qualifying international students
  • $1165.00 in fall, and again in the spring to qualifying domestic students

These amounts are based on the differing costs of the two types of health insurance.
