Documents & Deadlines

Background: TA Early Report

The TA Early Report is due to Teaching & Learning Administration in L&S each semester. This report includes final appointments for Teaching Assistants, as well as Teaching Specialists (Academic Staff title, previously 'Faculty Assistant') and UAs (Undergrad Assistants).

The report is typically due in mid-October for the fall semester, and early March for the spring semester.

  • Name (Last, First). TA name.
  • Course. Course Assignment
  • Appt Type. Indicate if the appointment is for a TA (teaching assistant), Teaching Specialist, or UA (undergrad assistant).

  • C-Basis Rate. List the full-time, C-Basis / 9-month rate (for standard rates see:https://kb.wisc.edu/ls/28638)
