During the first half of each Spring quarter, TAship renewals for graduate students will be determined for the following academic year according to the following guidelines:

I. Continuing students who have not exceeded the support limitations as outlined in Department Funding of the Graduate Student Handbook will be considered for renewal if they meet the following criteria:

1. Maintain a minimum of 3.0 GPA while making normal or better progress toward degree goal as determined by M.A. or Ph.D. advisers and dissertation directors.
2. Good teaching record as determined by TA Supervisor, Faculty visits, and Student evaluations.

II. Students who have exceeded the support limitations or who do not meet either of the above criteria will be required to submit a request to teach and will be considered and ranked with new applicants.

III. Failure to pass M.A. or Ph.D. exams or to maintain a 3.0 GPA, accumulation of more than 8 units of I/F/U grades, or failure to maintain a good teaching record will result in automatic denial of a teaching position until exam is passed and/or GPA is improved.
