Assistantships in CVAD

UNT College of Visual Arts and Design

TA: Teaching Assistant | TF: Teaching Fellow | GSA: Graduate Services Assistant

Graduate students must complete an application for each semester for which employment is desired — fall, spring or summer. Even if employment has been indicated as a provision of an offer letter, no graduate student can be employed without completion of the application.

If you are hired for a TA/TF/GSA position, your appointment will start the week prior to the beginning of the semester. Typically, there is an all-college meeting as well as other meetings throughout that week. Please be in touch with your supervisor — this could be a department chair or a member of the college’s technical staff or someone else — regarding your particular obligations. Your supervisor will be indicated on your employment contract.

For those graduate students whose appointment includes a course in the CVAD Foundations program, please note that you are required to attend the lecture that corresponds to your lab section as well as to attend weekly workshops.
