TA funding

The LFS TA program’s objective is to support undergraduate teaching and learning.
As such, funding for TA positions supported by the Associate Dean Academic office is for undergraduate courses only.

If you are teaching a course for an LFS professional master’s program or one cross listed with an LFS professional master’s program, we may be able to assist.

We can administer the TA hiring process through the LFS TA Application for graduate level courses that fund their own TA hours.

This funding for TA hours associated with professional graduate programs must first be approved by the program director.

Then details (course, TA hours, and student to be hired) and a worktag should be provided to Virginia Frankian, Academic Coordinator, at lfs.ta@ubc.ca , cc to the program director.

Faculty, students and administrators use the same link to the LFS TA Application System.
There are specific periods each year when the System is open for students to apply to TA for upcoming Sessions.

Below are links for instructors on using the online LFS TA Application System.
Please contact Virginia Frankian at lfs.ta@ubc.ca  if anything is unclear.

Please note:  If you are off campus, you must sign into the online TA application using VPN (Virtual Private Network).
