Graduate Assistants – Teaching (GATs) are selected each semester by the course instructor. Some courses are only offered once a year, while others are offered each semester. No teaching assistantship positions are offered during the summer. If you are interested in a TA position, please contact the faculty member teaching the course and complete the TA application.
International students are required to meet additional language requirements.
All TAs are required to complete the Teaching Assistant Training and Evaluation Program (TATEP) and attend the Teaching Assistant Institute (TAI) sponsored by the Center for Teaching Excellence. The TAI training must be taken before a new TA can teach and the training sessions are held each fall and spring semester.
If you have any questions, please contact Amanda Ray.
Non-resident TAs may be eligible for an out-of-state tuition waiver (i.e., resident rate tuition) if at least two sections of a course are taught, which is considered 50% full-time equivalent (FTE).
Resident tuition is paid from university funds for doctoral graduate teaching assistants only.
State-mandated health insurance is provided for state-supported graduate students (and their families) if at least two sections of a course are taught, which is considered 50% full-time equivalent (FTE).
