Teaching Assistantships and Other Jobs


Pending satisfactory academic progress and BGS approval, BGS students may receive payment from BGS and other Penn departments in exchange for services as Teaching Assistants or for other approved tasks. BGS policy states that students serve as TAs or other approved tasks for a maximum of two (2) semesters only. Complete and submit the forms below (PhD and VMD-PhD students, use BGS link; MD-PhD students, use MD-PhD link) to request permission BEFORE beginning your job. Instructions are at the bottom of the forms. The BGS office must receive your completed form before the beginning of the semester in which you plan to work or payment will not be approved.
