# Assistantship Information

Graduate Teaching Assistantships require an appropriate number of classroom contact hours and other duties (such as grading or study hall) during each of the Fall and Spring semesters. A typical first-year student might lead two one-hour calculus recitations and do six hours of grading per week. In later years, teaching duties may involve teaching your own section of a precalculus or calculus course.  The stipend for the 2015-2016 academic year ranges between $17,076-$18,144 depending upon the seniority and academic degree held by the student. In addition, Teaching Assistants pay a nominal amount of $25 each semester for tuition. All students have to pay$1129 per semester to cover the use of the health center, sports facilities, campus transportation, and student activities.
