ITA Program

The ITA Program is designed to prepare graduate students who are non-native North American English speakers to take on teaching assistantships, including grading, holding office hours, leading discussion or lab sections, or teaching a class. Spoken English classes, ITA Seminars, and classroom observations help ITAs refine their skills.

In order to receive the benefits of a Graduate Teaching Assistant position, ITA Clearance is required.

To prepare for their TA roles, students must meet two requirements.


  1. ITAP Spoken English Proficiency  (in addition to admissions requirement)
  2. Successful completion of ITA Training
