Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GTA)
Graduate teaching assistants support faculty by performing instruction-related duties, such as:
- Teaching lower-level undergraduate courses and labs
- Developing teaching materials
- Leading class discussions
- Preparing and giving examinations
- Grading examinations or papers.
For more information, see the Required Tests for GTA Eligibility policy.
Graduate Research Assistantships (GRA)
Graduate research assistants may perform research assignments under the direct supervision of a faculty member. The research must directly relate to their program of study, thesis dissertation or capstone project. The label “GRA” only applies to graduate assistants who receive stipend and waiver from external awards (e.g., grants or contracts).
