Samples of Graduate Student and TA Handbooks
The links below are from a range of academic departments at MIT and across the country. Some of the links are to pdf-versions of Graduate Student Handbooks, others are to on-line listings of Ph.D. program requirements, expectations and deadlines. Please note that a few of the links go to requirements and expectations specifically for TAs, while other pages are intended for graduate students in general – but contain subsections with information for TAs in particular. The list is by no means exclusive. It is intended to be a starting point for departments wishing to establish a written set of guidelines and or/procedures for their graduate students. In addition, when developing TA handbooks, departments may wish to consider the Institute-wide Graduate Policies and Procedures from the Office of the Dean for Graduate Education.
