Information regarding May/Summer session instructional funding has been sent to department administrators and accountants.

If you have any questions about May/Summer session instructional funding please contact Pandora Aaron (, 4-9370).

This document describes an option available to departments regarding TA appointments for specific courses for 2008-09. For some departments, the agreement may provide added security and flexibility in making TA appointments.

The deadline for requesting a TA Allocation Agreement for fall and/or spring semesters 2008-09 is Friday, March 28.

Pandora Aaron and Nanette Hanks will be holding two open sessions to answer any questions you may have about the new agreement:

Refreshments will be served.

The information contained in this document relates to training for the new Enterprise Financial System, and should clarify many of the questions you may have as we continue to design and implement EFS within CLA. (See: EFS Training.doc)
Tuition Benefits for Summer 2008 Graduate student TA and Instructor Appointments

All graduate students who teach during Summer Session are appointed as graduate student employees with a job classification that does not carry tuition benefits.

In some cases students may need to enroll in a class offered during summer that is related to their graduate studies. CLA will fund tuition benefits for those students.

Graduate teaching assistant appointments for CLA May term 2008 and Summer term 2008 courses are eligible. These students are automatically appointed under the 9575 job classification in summer session (non-tuition-bearing type). Research Assistants, Administrative Assistants or other types of non-instructional appointments outside of the 9575 appointment classification are not eligible.

Funding is available primarily for students enrolled in CLA graduate programs.

Students can additional information and the application form on CLA Administration website at:

The firm deadline for submitting requests is April 25, 2008.
