Course Assistantships & Graders

A Course Assistant (CA) is a graduate or coterminal student who works part time helping an instructor with a class. The CA's responsibilities can include office hours for individual student assistance, review or study sessions, occasional lectures, preparation of assignments, grading exams and projects, and solutions. A CA for a laboratory class may also be responsible for laboratory supervision, equipment, or demonstrations. The department also accepts grader applications for each quarter and summer session.
