PhD Teaching Requirement: G2 year

[Part of the Policies of the CHD, August 2019]

All students entering the Ph.D. program as of fall 2013 or later are required to serve as a Teaching Fellow ("TF") at quarter time (0.25 FTE) for at least one semester for a SEAS course or for an FAS course (excluding Summer or Extension courses) taught by a SEAS faculty member. This requirement must be met during the student’s G2 year. In exceptional cases, a research advisor may request a deferral of the TF requirement until the G3 year, but there are financial implications for the advisor that must be agreed upon before a deferral is approved.
