Course Assistantship Application Fall 2017


The Department offers Course Assistantships to select graduate and advanced undergraduate students. A Course Assistant (CA) is a student who has demonstrated exceptional academic promise in an area who can assist a faculty member in course administration. In order to be considered for the Course Assistantship, the Department requires that you be: (1) a current registered student for the semester in which you will serve as a CA; (2) in good academic and conduct standing with the University; and (3) not be registered for the course you want to CA. By applying for the position, you are indicating that you understand this. In addition, your submission provides consent to the Graduate Student Services or Office of Judicial Affairs to release information pertaining to your disciplinary/conduct history to the IEOR Department.

Duties include: grading exams and homework assignments, classroom preparation and maintenance, course administration and liaison (i.e. emailing and addressing students, respond to course inquiries), and paperwork as necessary. Course Assistants do not instruct. Faculty will evaluate Course Assistants at the end of each term; future assignments are based on faculty evaluations and academic performance.
