Residency and Credit Hour Requirements
Usually, during the first two years in the program, the only employment assignments for doctoral students are their doctoral assistantships. Graduate assistants ordinarily should not accept outside employment. If a limited amount (10 hours or less) of outside employment is deemed advisable, such employment must be approved by the Director of Doctoral Internships (Dr. Davis). The Student Handbook and Program Policies manual outlines the process for gaining approval for outside employment. It should be noted that outside employment is typically not approved for students who are completing their first and second year in the program. If such additional employment is at Ball State, the approval of the Dean of the Graduate School also is necessary.
