CSSE Graduate Teaching Assistants

Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) and Graduate Assistants (GAs)

A graduate teaching assistant is classified as a GTA (e.g., in COMP1000 and COMP1100), if at least 50% of his/her responsibility as a teaching assistant is devoted to the direct instruction of students in classrooms or computer laboratories. If the assistant’s role is a grader (e.g., a grader for COMP3500), he or she will be categorized as a graduate assistant (GA) rather than a graduate teaching assistant (GTA).
