Selection process: It is to your advantage to submit your information as soon as possible. By UTSA regulations, graduate students eligible for teaching assistantships require a GPA of 3.0 or greater for the last 60 credit hours of undergraduate work; students without this requisite are conditionally accepted into graduate programs, and are ineligible for TA positions.

Candidates for TA positions will take a test. The top performers in the test will be interviewed by a selection committee. The assistantships will be granted based on performance in the test and recommendation of the committee. Once the selections have been made, you will be notified by email.

For NEW Teaching Assistants: There will be a mandatory orientation meeting for all TAs prior to the start of classes. Upon hiring you will be provided with the a copy of the guidebook to review. During the first semester, all new TAs will register for a weekly 1-hour TA Training Seminar.
