Most of your “assignments” will be TAing, as defined by the instructor of the course for which you are TAing. One credit hour of CS 2910 equates to three hours of each week’s work as a TA. You may not be payed for those hours, but if you are hired for more than three hours a week you may be payed for the additional hours.
This course may be retaken, or taken for more than 1 credit hour. You will be required to TA unpaid for 3 hours for each credit of CS 2910, and to attend CS 2910 meetings each semester in which you take it for any credit. If you plan on retaking it or enrolling for 2+ hours, please contact the instructor.
You may TA for more than (credits × 3) hours per week and be paid for the excess hours, but only with prior approval from your supervisor.
