A graduate student may hold an appointment as a Teaching Assistant in the School of Physics and Astronomy if he/she is in good standing with the University of Minnesota Graduate School and is making satisfactory progress towards a graduate degree with a major in the School of Physics and Astronomy.
The Graduate School provides a “warning” concerning a student’s status for each semester if the student is deficient in one of the factors listed below. If the deficiency is not remedied by the beginning of the following semester, a “hold” is placed on registration and the student cannot register until the deficiency is removed. Registration in Graduate School is a prerequisite for holding the position of Teaching Assistant.
Criteria for a “warning” on a student’s registration are the following:
A graduate student receiving a “warning” should take prompt action to remove the deficiency before the end of that semester so his/her status for the following semester will not be in question.
