Instructional Assistant


Graduate Student Assistantships  > Instructional Assistant


Instruction assistants (IA) are graduate students who do not have direct instructional duties but assist employing departments with academic courses, programs, projects, or other activities in support of the instructional process.

(The support of teaching represented by Teaching Fellows, Teaching Assistants, and Instructional Assistants is intended to assist faculty instruction. The primary teaching responsibility of the university is vested in the faculty. Students are not allowed to enroll in courses for which they are assigned assistantship responsibilities.)

A graduate or professional student employed in a position with student contact  is required to meet the university requirements for English language proficiency.
