Details for each course timeslot and lab/seminar/tutorial requirements and timeslots are also noted on the TA App Site with each course listing. Please note some courses have specific requirements for TAs to perform that require the TA to be on site on specific dates. Those dates and requirements are listed on the Timetable document and are truly non-negotiable.

The SKHS Graduate Assistant will forward an email to all eligible SKHS Graduate Students providing them with the specified dates during which they may visit the TA App Site and perform their ranking choices. This timeline will be ten (10) working days. Following that timeline the site will close to further access.
TA ranking requests provided by graduate students via the Online App system will be reviewed by the SKHS Admin Academic team and final assignments identified. The SKHS Graduate Assistant will forward each identified TA their TA Agreement Form for acceptance. The TA will accept or decline the assignment as appropriate. Students who decline assignments are considered for but not guaranteed an alternate assignment depending on the needs of the School's programs.
Upon acceptance the SKHS Graduate Assistant will prepare an online TA payment contract. The Student will accept the online contract to initiate regular monthly TA payments. TA payments are made as direct deposits to Student bank accounts on the last working day of each month from Sep to Dec (Fall Term) and Jan to Apr (Winter Term) each year in 1/4 the total TA contract amount for that Term.
