How do I accurately enter a Teaching Assistant to a section?

Follow the instructions below to add a Teaching Assistant to section.  The instructions that you will follow will depend on whether you are adding to a Credit Bearing section (LEC, LAB) or a Non-credit Bearing section (XCL, DIS).

  • Non-Credit Bearing Sections – Teaching Assistants may be assigned to supervise and convene non-credit sections. In Banner, SSASECT, under the specific non-credit section, the Teaching Assistant’s name should be listed and the “Primary Indicator” box should be checked.  TA’s should only be listed as IOR for non-credit bearing activity

  • Credit Bearing Sections - Teaching Assistants who are providing instructional support to an Instructor of Record in a credit-bearing course may be paid from Course Fees.  The tenured faculty member will have the primary indicator box checked; however, the TA may have more responsibility.
