Teaching Assistant


Graduate Student Assistantships  > Teaching Assistant


Teaching assistants (TA) are graduate students who have direct student contact in a formal instructional setting but who do not have primary responsibility for teaching a course for credit; they perform under the instructor’s direct supervision and provide general assistance to the instructional process. Teaching assistants may not be listed as instructor of record though they may lecture.

(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 English language proficiency requirement described in the graduate assistantship Qualifications for Appointment
