Fall 2020 TA Update (8/10)

Monday, August 10, 2020

TA Offers are being made to PhD students who applied. As more PhD students accept and resign their TA appointments, we will continue to make offers as capacity and budget allow.

There are more PhD applicants than positions. There are a number of PhD students who still need TA positions but do not yet have an offer. Offers to MS students can only occur once all PhD students with need are appointed.

Due to the uncertainty of who will still be a TA when school starts, even small changes to the TA pool can create a domino effect for tentative course assignments. Due to this, assignments to courses will not be made until next week at the earliest. Some appointees will not have an assignment until closer to the start date, to accommodate late changes to enrollment and need.
