Welcome to the TA home page. If you are reading this page, you are either interested in applying for a graduate or undergraduate TA position or in finding out about resources available for your current TA position. Each quarter (excluding summer), CSE hires approximately:

  • 75+ undergraduate TAs dedicated to introductory programming courses.
  • 70+ undergraduate TAs working on other CSE courses.
  • 80 graduate TAs who support all CSE courses.

TA working with capstone studentsThe Graduate TA and Undergraduate TA menu items to your left provide information about application procedures, roles/responsibilities, and pay. Subsequent links (Administrative, Teaching, Technical, and Professional Development) direct you to resources that will help current TAs better perform their jobs.

Finally, take note of the Bob Bandes Award menu item. This award, established in 1984 in memory of Bob Bandes, a Computer Science graduate student who died in a skydiving accident the preceding year, recognizes exceptional performance by undergraduate and graduate students as CSE teaching assistants(lecturing, grading, consulting). It serves as both a memorial for Bob Bandes and as an acknowledgement of the outstanding contributions of our department's TAs.
