Recruitment, Appointment and Training

Op3.16-6 Recruitment, Appointment and Training


The Graduate College website contains a list of known GA openings posted at the request of the hiring unit. However, hiring units may use their own strategies for recruitment and making hiring recommendations for GAs to the Graduate College.


Units must ensure that the potential GA meets the university eligibility requirements (Op3.16-1). Once eligibility is confirmed, a GA Bear PAF should be submitted to the Graduate College for approval based on university due dates.


The Graduate College holds a mandatory training for new Teaching Assistants prior to each semester. These sessions provide information regarding instructional responsibilities and other relevant information.
