Graduate Assistant Training

Welcome to UNC Greensboro! All graduate students with a paid service appointment, hereafter generically called Graduate Assistants, must complete training before beginning work.

All Graduate Assistants must take annual FERPA and Title IX training each academic year. In addition, students who are hired as Graduate Teaching Associates (GTAs) are required to have completed UNCG’s comprehensive teacher training within the past seven years.

Please contact Dr. Greg Bell at if you need to be added to one of these courses or your believe there has been a mistake in your course assignment.

This annual training consists of modules on FERPA and Title IX. This training must be completed each year and should take about one hour to complete.

All Graduate Assistants must complete this training each academic year. Failure to do so may result in rescission of your Graduate Assistantship and any stipend or tuition benefits that accompany it.

This training will take less than 2 hours to complete and must be completed by Thursday January 11, 2024.

GTA New Instructor Training is required for all Graduate Teaching Associates (GTA) as a supplement to the annual training on FERPA and Title IX. GTA training remains valid for seven years. If you’ve completed GTA training within the past seven years, you need not complete it again. This two-part training is hosted by the University Teaching and Learning Commons in collaboration with the Graduate School.

The online portion of the training is now available and individuals with the GTA role who have not been through training in the past seven years should have been added to the course automatically. If you wish to observe the class, you may reach out to Stephanie Guzman ( in UTLC. It is anticipated that the course will take approximately 6 hours to complete. GTAs must complete the online training requirements by Friday, January 5, 2024.

Those GTAs who are enrolled in the training are also required to report to campus for in-person training on Friday January 5, 2024 from 9AM until 2PM in the Nursing and Instructional Building (1007 Walker Ave), Room 101.
