ISyE Graduate Student Guide for Completing the Support Request

All students, regardless of major/program, must complete an online request for student support each semester. This support request serves three critical functions. First, the information submitted by the student is used by the work department to determine the appropriate stipend payment by homeschool. Second, the information is used by the student home school Graduate Program Coordinator to determine the appropriate tuition waiver for the student. Third, students should self-report all fellowships received. This data will aid in determining supplemental support (if applicable) and the application of the appropriate tuition waiver. This request must be updated each term, even if the source of funding has not changed.

Step 1: Log in:

Step 2: For new student hires (not hired previously at GT) select “Request Job for New Student” and complete available fields. Continuing students should select “Request for Next Semester” and complete the available fields.

Step 3: Review student information and self-report fellowships.

  • Login to Passport to update your email information, if needed.
  • Contact your Academic Office to correct information, if needed.
  • Confirm existing fellowships (i.e., start/end terms and amount per term).
  • Add new fellowships not listed, if any.

Step 4: Initiate hire request:

  • Select Student: Search for your name in drop down menu.
  • Select Advisor: Search for advisor name in drop down menu.
  • Select Stipend Period: Select Monthly.
  • Select % time: ISyE standard percent time is 40% for fall and spring semesters. Please discuss summer funding with your advisor.
  • Select Start Term/Year: Choose from drop down term/year.
  • Add: Comments/Attachments (i.e., fellowship award letter).

GTA Form


  • Students must personally update their support forms each term.
  • Faculty members (or their designees) approve and provide updated account details.
  • Strict adherence to the aforementioned deadlines by both students and faculty members is required in order for stipends and any applicable tuition waivers to be processed.

Any changes to a student’s status (e.g., receiving a fellowship after support form completion or changing the planned graduation term) should be reported to both the Academic and Finance Offices as soon as possible. Students should initiate a new request through GT GradWorks to update financial support.
