Eligibility for ISA appointments:

  • Enrolled as a CSU, Chico undergraduate or enrolled or registered in a CSU, Chico graduate Program (including adjunct enrollment in RCE’s GRST 899)

Eligibility for TA/GA appointments:

  • Enrolled or registered in a CSU, Chico graduate program (including adjunct enrollment in RCE’s GRST 899)

While continuous enrollment in a CSU, Chico master’s degree program is mandated, it is best practice for Unit 11 employees not to work beyond two consecutive semesters if they are not enrolled in courses.  Continuous enrollment can be met through enrollment in GRST 899 through RCE.  This “adjunct enrollment” in which no credit is earned, allows maintenance of status in the master’s program and to make use of selected campus resources in the completion of the program.  Additionally, they do not qualify to continue working they are not otherwise academically eligible, for reasons which may include student conduct issues.
