WHO IS AN ITA?
An international teaching assistant is a student from any country other than the United States who is here, at SIUC, to study in graduate school and has received an assistantship to teach in their department. A student from Canada is considered an ITA, as is a student from Nepal or Cameroon. The designation is a matter of immigration status, not native language.
- State Law
- SIUC Policies – From the Graduate Catalog, General Regulations and Procedures.
