TA/TM Appointment Priorities

In allocating Teaching Assistant/Tutor-Marker positions, the School of Criminology will also take into account any or all of the following:


1. Suitability for particular courses (e.g. discipline of prior degree(s), publications, experience, instructor preference);

2. Applicant’s preferences.

If an assignment within a priority group requires a selection between applicants, the graduate student without financial support from merit based scholarships or merit based fellowships during the semester of appointment will have priority for the appointment.

In accordance with the Collective Agreement, the assignment given a Teaching Assistant/Tutor-Marker will not normally be fewer than three (3) or more than seven (7) base units, although it is not possible for the School of Criminology to guarantee applicants an appointment to a particular course and/or to a particular number of tutorials in any given semester.
