How do I apply for a Graduate Teaching Assistantship (GTA)?

You must be a fully admitted graduate student to apply for a graduate teaching assistantship (GTA) position. All continuing and incoming fully admitted MPAc students will be e-mailed a GTA application in the spring (usually in April) for the following academic year. If there are any openings for the spring term, all continuing and incoming fully admitted MPAc students will be e-mailed a GTA application in the fall (usually November).

A limited number of GTA positions are available and are awarded on a competitive basis. GTAs provide instructional support for faculty and tutoring services for accounting students. In exchange, GTAs receive a partial tuition waiver and a small monthly stipend.
