Each year, the School of Graduate Studies and Research offers a limited number of teaching associate positions to qualified doctoral students. Usually, an associate teaches six credit hours of undergraduate courses, but other teaching-related service is sometimes assigned in lieu of teaching.
These positions carry a stipend and require the associate to be enrolled for graduate credit during each semester of the appointment. During the summer following the appointment, a tuition waiver of up to nine hours of graduate credit is awarded. All fees, as well as tuition during the Fall and Spring semesters, must be paid by the associate.
Minimum requirements: Associates must hold a master’s degree or have completed 36 graduate semester hours prior to the appointment and must be enrolled in an IUP doctoral program and remain in good standing during the term of the appointment. Departments may have additional requirements.
For further information, contact the director of Doctoral Studies in the department offering the specific doctoral program.
