Graduate Teaching Assistantship (GTA)

GTAs support the teaching of undergraduate courses at Nipissing University.  Teaching Assistantship support is administered by Research Services, the School of Graduate Studies and by faculty members who hold research grants or externally funded research contracts.  

Employment of registered graduate students as graduate teaching assistants is governed by the provisions of the Ontario Council of Graduate Studies and Nipissing University's School of Graduate Studies regulations.  Please refer to your graduate program for specific information on the roles and responsibilities of GTAs.  

All teaching assistantship work is considered diversionary from the student's main MRP or Thesis research and therefore, graduate students are subject to the Principle of Timely Completion (formerly known as the "10 Hour Rule.")​

These payments are considered employment income by the university and tax deductions are made at source.  A T4 will be issued for tax purposes.
