All students who will be serving as teaching assistants for at least the first time are required to arrive at Cornell for training about ten days before the semester starts. Incoming student teaching assistants for whom English is not their native language are generally required to show up in early August for additional training, for which there is a stipend supplement for the additional living costs. (All teaching assistants are required to arrive five days in advance of classes and to remain on campus until all course grades are completed.) Students with undergraduate degrees from countries where English is not the official language are required to take an oral examination prior to being employed as a TA. This assessment is administered by the Cornell University Center for Teaching Excellence . Depending upon the results of this assessment, international students may have additional training requirements designed for non-native English speakers.
