Parental leave

The Short-term Parental Leave plan provides up to four consecutive weeks of leave for the period directly before or after the birth or adoption of a child. During this time, the student continues to be enrolled and, if on an assistantship appointment, the student will continue to receive graduate assistant benefits (i.e., tuition waivers will remain in place), health benefits, and his/her salary.

  • A full-time graduate student on an assistantship appointment is eligible for four consecutive weeks of paid Parental Leave from his/her graduate program. In the event that both parents are full-time graduate students at WSU, only one may take Parental Leave or the four consecutive weeks may be shared between them.

  • Full-time graduate students who are not on an assistantship may request Parental Leave without tuition or salary support.

    Short-Term Parental Leave Form

    • EAA to add Graduate School Funding to the position

    • Request a JV transfer of funds from Paul Weed

    • No action needed- PI/Supervisor and student have made arrangements to make up the work/hrs
