** Course Assistant (CA) appointments do not count towards the three-quarter TA requirement for graduate students in the Physics Department.

Regardless of the type of appointment, graduate students who are TAs or CAs and have reached TGR status receive a total tuition allowance of $3,297 corresponding to TGR tuition.

Undergraduate TAs receive the same salaries but do not receive a tuition allowance.

Summer TAs are paid the same as regular academic year TAs, just over a shorter period of time. 

Students in coterminal Master's programs should refer to this link for detailed information on tuition assessment and Undergraduate vs. Graduate status. Coterm students who are eligible and opt to change to the graduate coterminal student group and are assessed the applicable graduate tuition rate will receive the relevant tuition allowance.

Graders are paid hourly and do not receive any tuition allowance.
