TA Resources

Teaching Assistants

TAs are encouraged to use the website to identify their office location or assigned MSLC schedule, to request a teaching assignment, or to access a variety of forms to renew aid or request an Independent Study course, just to name a few.

The TA Handbook pdf outlines the duties and responsibilities of MSCS TAs. As indicated, teaching appointments are awarded at 25% and 50% funding levels and include a full waiver of tuition and a partial waiver of fees. Duties include teaching, tutoring students in the MSLC, and grading.

Teaching Assignments

TAs can view their teaching schedules by going to my.UIC.edu. Search all courses offered by MSCS to find your teaching schedule which typically consists of 2-3 discussion sections. Every effort is made to ensure that TAs are also available during the associated lecture to help proctor exams, although this may not always be possible.

TAs should submit the MSCS Graduate Student Schedule pdf form when requested each term. This form provides valuable information used to create the teaching schedule while giving the TA an opportunity to specify courses they have taught and/or wish to teach and any special circumstances that may affect the teaching schedule.
