How to Terminate a Teaching Assistant (TA) Contract – class did not meet enrollment requirements
For TA terminations when the class did not make, the effective date of termination is the first day of classes. The student will be paid for one week’s worth of stipend, since Fall and Spring TA contracts include a prep period the week before classes start. (Summer session contracts do not include a prep week and therefore no payment will be issued). The prorated stipend amount will be calculated by OGS upon receipt of the terminated Assistantship Form.
All assistantship terminations must be processed through OGS via the assistantship system. Assistantships are not processed through UNMJobs.
Assistantship Form with signatures must be received at OGS as soon as possible upon decision to cancel class, and no later than the first day of classes. Failure to meet this deadline will result in overpayment to the student.

If the student is not available to sign the terminated Assistantship Form, the director/department chair’s signature alone will be sufficient. A letter of resignation is not required.
