Teaching Fellow System

The Teaching Fellow System (TFS) is the online tool to support FAS departments and programs and some professional schools as they provide teaching assistance for their courses. TFS is used to allocate Teaching Fellow (TF) and Part-Time Acting Instructor (PTAI) positions, to assign students to these positions, to process appointment letters, to send payment information via GSPS, the Graduate Student Payroll System, for graduate students and via Payroll for professional students, to make revisions in allocations and appointments, and to collect information both for student evaluation of teaching assistants and for graduate students’ transcripts. TFS provides a consistent process that offers timely information through embedded rules and validations.
