ITA Language Certification for Master Students

Students in master programs can request an ITA Certification only when they have a job offer for a specific class, even if it is just a tentative job assignment.

This allows us to use our resources efficiently. Not every master student who wants to TA will find a job. One added note: given the competition for TA jobs, master students should start looking for TA positions on campus as soon as possible.
No, they do not. However, students who use their TOEFL speaking score in lieu of the ITA test can anticipate their rating in advance by referring to the ITA Language Certification chart.
