Summer UTAs needed for Dr. Hanratty’s BIOL-L311 course

Please check the summer course schedule to make sure that you are available during all BIOL-L 311 class meeting times.

In order to be eligible to serve as a UTA, you must meet the following requirements:

  • Class Standing: UTAs should have at least junior class standing by the time the appointment begins. However, exceptional underclassman may also be considered.
  • GPA: Candidates must have an overall GPA of 3.25. That is, only applicants with a GPA of 3.25 or higher will be considered for UTA positions.
  • Specific Grades: You must have earned an A- or better in the course for which you are applying to assist. You must also have earned excellent grades in related classes. You will need to submit a copy of your unofficial IU transcript with your application.
  • Written Statement: This is a very important part of the application. When candidates for a position are relatively equal in the above areas, the statement can make the difference. Be sure to proofread your statement.

In addition, only students who have not yet graduated can be considered, due to university requirements.

You can find the UTA application online at:

You should also provide an up-to-date unofficial transcript, and also complete the written statement associated with the application.
