Graduate Teaching Assistantship Eligibility
To be eligible for teaching assistantships, all graduate students who are not native speakers of English must achieve a minimum score of 50 on the SPEAK test. International students must pass an oral examination to demonstrate English fluency. Students who fail this examination should take courses from the Applied English Center.
Every student who receives a GTA appointment will be required to complete PHSX 702 at the first offering of the course starting with the semester of the student's initial GTA appointment. Failure to complete this class at the first opportunity may affect consideration for subsequent GTA appointments.
