Teaching Assistant

Teaching Assistant

Teaching Assistant titles are in the unclassified service and in the SUNY Graduate Student Negotiating Unit.

Appointees to these titles must be enrolled as graduate students. Teaching Assistant titles assigned to academic functions are considered "instructional" and budgeted in I&DR-Instruction. [Note: Graduate Assistants assigned to academic functions are charged to I&DR-Support.]

(HS) identifies assistantships assigned to Health Sciences functions.

There is a negotiated minimum stipend for the academic year for full assistantships at University Center campuses. Consult the current agreement.

TEACHING ASSISTANT, performs teaching assistance at a campus, while concurrently holding graduate student status. Does related work as required.

Teaching Assistants may be awarded full assistantships or half assistantships. Graduate student employees on a full/half assistantship are generally expected to provide 20/10 hours of service per week. Employees in this bargaining unit are engaged in professional activities of such a nature that the output produced or the result accomplished often cannot be precisely measured in relation to a given period of time. It is therefore anticipated that there will be fluctuations above and below these general expectations.

Preferred Qualifications:

A Bachelor's degree and acceptance into matriculated graduate status at a SUNY campus.
