Spring 2021 LA Program Application

When you application has been reviewed you will be contacted to attend a group interview using Zoom. If you are a returning LA you will still need to submit an application, but will not be required to attend another interview. The results of the group interview and application are then shared with the faculty so they can decide who they would like to work with for the upcoming semester. 

Group Interviews

Applicants who advance to the interview stage will be notified via email. These applicants will be added to a Canvas site to facilitate signing up for a group interview. Sign up occurs on a first-come, first-served basis and closes 36 hours before the session starts. Each interview session is limited to 18 applicants.


All applicants eligible for the 2020 - 2021 academic year Learning Assistant positions will be informed of their application status starting in May through the summer break via email. If you applied online for this position and have not received an email about your status by then, please contact the LA Program Staff at

Applicants can expect to receive one of two types of offers.

  • Standard: Offered to applicants who have already completed the course(s) to which they will be assigned.
  • Conditional: Offered to applicants who are currently enrolled in the course to which they will be assigned. These positions are offered to the applicant on the condition that at least a B+ in the course has been earned.
