Appointments to these positions are based upon the recommendation of a student's department chair and are effective for one academic year or one semester, but are renewable.
International students are not usually eligible for appointments as teaching assistants in their first year of graduate work unless they have demonstrated proficiency in spoken English or they have received training at another American university.
All newly appointed teaching assistants are expected to attend the Teaching Assistant Orientation (held in early September) and Teaching Assistant Workshops (held throughout the academic year), both of which are organized through the university's Center for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT).
