TEACHING ASSIGNMENTS

Teaching assignments are issued on a semester-to-semester basis based on courses offered and TAs needed.  Approximately 6 weeks prior to the beginning of each semester, a list of teaching assistants is formed based on information from each graduate student’s major professor.  After this list is formulated, each graduate student on that list is issued via email a teaching preference form (See example below), listing the possible positions available for that semester. 

TA Preferences

Once teaching assignments are made, the TA’s responsibilities are as follows:

  1. Contact the Instructor of the course immediately to determine the days and hours of the teaching assignment.
  2. Ascertain if there is any conflict between the TA assignment and your class schedule.  If a conflict exists, contact the personnel making the assignments immediately so that adjustments can be made.
