    A Teaching Assistant (TA) assists in the instruction of any upper or lower division course at the University under the supervision of a faculty member. The TA primarily assists the faculty member in charge of the course by conducting discussion or laboratory sections that supplement faculty lectures and by grading assignments and examinations. Graduate students enrolled full-time (twelve units or more) may be appointed up to 50 percent time (twenty hours/week) Teaching Assistants during the academic year.

    Graduate students may also be appointed up to 50 percent time (twenty hours/week) as Readers and Tutors. A Tutor provides tutoring to individual (one-on-one) or small groups (three or more) of undergraduate or graduate students who require additional help to understand a course or topical material. In some instances tutoring may focus on improved use of the English language. A Reader, on the other hand, assists a course instructor by grading homework, papers, or exams and may also hold office hours to answer students' questions about such assignments.

    All appointees must be registered full-time (12 units or more), and must be in good academic standing, i.e., maintain a GPA of 3.0 in upper-division and graduate course work and must not have more than a total of eight units of F and/or U grades overall.

    Teaching Assistants and others appointed on academic titles at 25 percent time or more for the quarter are eligible for payment of partial fee remission of 100 percent of the annual education and registration fees and 100 percent of the Graduate Student Health Insurance fee. For Teaching Assistants, these fee payments are credited to students’ accounts prior to the beginning of the quarter. Readers and Tutors who eventually work 110 hours during the quarter are refunded fees at the end of the quarter after copies of timesheets are submitted to OGS. The Graduate Student Academic Title Pay Rates provides information about salary for teaching assistant, reader and tutor positions.

    Graduate students appointed as teaching assistants, associates, readers or tutors (ASE’S) are represented by the Association of Student Employees/UAW under a collective bargaining agreement with the University of California. All salary payments under these titles are subject to a deduction for union membership dues or agency fee deduction for students who choose not to become members of the union. The university/UAW Agreement can be retrieved electronically at http://atyourservice.ucop.edu/employees/policies/systemwide_contracts/uaw/index.html

    NOTE: Due to the limited number of TA and Reader positions that are available at the NANO Department, we strongly encourage students to seek employment outside of NANO.
