PART 3.  Required for Graduate Teaching Assistants Only
All classroom graduate teaching assistants (GTA's), whether working on-ground or online, must complete the online GTA orientation. This training consists of tutorials found at LinkedIn Learning and the Accessible Syllabus Training Series offered by Distance Education. This will take approximately 5-6 hours of your time, so be sure to plan accordingly. Please complete all parts of the training prior to the start of your assistantship. Use the orientation/training checklist found below to record your completion dates. Turn this form in to your GA supervisor during your first week of work and be sure to provide a copy to the College of Graduate Studies for our records.

ORIENTATION/TRAINING CHECKLIST:  ALL newly hired GA's (GTA, GRA, GAA) should complete and submit this form to their GA supervisors during their first week of work as graduate assistants.  GTA's must submit a copy of the training checklist to the College of Graduate Studies.

NEW HIRE PAPERWORK SESSION:  (Returning GA's do not need to attend!)
In order to be placed on APSU's payroll and receive your stipend, you must attend a session to complete hiring paperwork.  Due to space limitations, advance registration is required.  Be sure to bring your Social Security card and original documents for completion of the Form I-9 (see page 3 for acceptable documents) with you to the session.  International students should only register for the designated session and are required to present a visa, passport, I-20, and I-94. If you are unable to attend a session, please send an email to runyonk@apsu.edu so an alternate date and time can be arranged.
