It's time to start making appointments for Summer 2012!
Please do the following by Friday, April 27:
1. First, talk with your research advisor, if you have one, about your source of support for the summer.
2. Next, go to the following link to the TA/RA Assistantship Preference form for Summer 2012: https://my.physics.illinois.edu/grad/taprefs/
Log in to the assistantship preference form and provide the support information that you are requesting for the summer. Note that if you are requesting TA support, we have only 5 courses -- Phys 101, 102, 211, 212, and 214 -- for which we need TAs in the summer, so when making TA preferences, please be sure to select only one of these 5 courses. In addition, if you are requesting TA support, please be sure to fill in your summer schedule and note that you should indicate the times you ARE available to work.
3. Finally, if you will not be supported by your advisor on an RA, please schedule an appointment with Lance Cooper (firstname.lastname@example.org) at your earliest convenience so that we can discuss TA or other options for earning your summer stipend.
Note that, in general, RAs are paid in June and July, but not August, while TAs are generally paid in July and August, but not June.
We need your summer support information no later than Friday, April 27. Please contact the Grad Office if you have any questions.
