TA Resource Centre

TAs are paid bi-monthly on the 15th and the 30th or 31st of each month. If you have not arranged for payroll direct deposit, your pay cheques can be picked up at Financial Services/Payroll on the 5th floor of the TEF-3 building. You will need photo ID to pick up your pay cheques. Please also submit your Payroll Direct Deposit forms to Financial Services/Payroll for payments to begin.

If there are any problems with your appointment, please inform the sociology graduate secretary immediately.

As a TA in our department, you have been assigned an office in the AnSo building. If you have not done so already, please see the sociology graduate secretary in the sociology grad office in order to find out where your office is located and to obtain a key request.

As you will be sharing office space with other TAs, please ensure that your TA office hours are posted clearly outside your office. It is a good idea to negotiate your office hours with the TAs sharing your office space so that students coming to see you have uninterrupted time with you.

If you are required to photocopy material for class, and you will be photocopying in the department copy room across from the main office, you will need to ask your instructor to supply you with their copy code. The copy code is needed in order to log onto the copy machine. Please refer to the document in your TA orientation package entitled "A Few Guidelines for Teaching Assistants" for more information about photocopying.

If you require equipment for a class, equipment can be booked from the sociology main office. Please remember to return any equipment borrowed from the mailroom promptly after class.

If your TA duties conflict with deadlines for your courses or responsibilities for other academic work, please be sure to notify your own instructor (or supervisor) and the instructor of the course you are TAing for in order to work out a solution. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact the sociology graduate secretary.
