Student Questions about Rutgers Bureaucratic Procedures

There are a number of things your students will expect you to know as a teaching assistant besides the course material.  During the first few weeks you will find that students assume that you, as a part of the Rutgers staff, have committed to memory the academic calendar and Rutgers bureaucratic procedures. The TA handbook contains a good overview of the bureaucratic make-up of Rutgers. It may also be helpful to browse through an undergraduate catalog prior to the onset classes to familiarize yourself with the different schools and programs just to give a sense of where some of these questions are coming from.

  • For student questions about the Geography major you should ask the students to contact our secretary or undergraduate advisor.
  • For student questions about other majors, colleges, and all else, you should ask the student to contact their college advisors.
