The School has a number of Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GTAs) which constitute a contractual arrangement between the University and the graduate student, whereby the student (GTA) agrees to work for the University in return for a stipend and benefits (12 credit hours of tuition and optional reduced health insurance).

A Teaching Assistantship appointment is generally 0.49 Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) and requires 15-19.6 hours per week. Work assignments are independent of the student's graduate program.
