Understanding your TA/TF Forms

Starting in the fall term, all Teaching Assistants (TAs) and Teaching Fellows (TFs) contracts across the university will have to be negotiated using the Teaching Assistant and Teaching Fellow Forms.

Familiarizing yourself with the forms before meeting with your employment supervisor is important as to better understand the document, what it entails, and to pinpoint any questions or concerns you may have.

While basic elements of a contract, including start dates, end dates, pay rate, number of assigned hours, and course are outlined in your E-contract, how the job itself is structured depends greatly on how you and your employment supervisor fill out these forms. To ensure that you better understand the forms, and to help make sure the work you do is recognized, the following links give some quick info, tips, and examples.
