ITA Orientation

The orientation is for prospective international TA’s who have never taught in the U.S. 

International TA’s who are coming to UConn after having taught at another U.S. institution should submit written evidence of the TA position to the UCAELI office.  English proficiency may be certified based on previous TA experience, but the student is still welcome to attend the UConn ITA orientation.

Please Note: This is an in-person only orientation. No virtual option available.
