Seeking New Course Assistants
We are currently accepting application for course assistants for courses offered in fall 1. Students interested in being considered for available hourly course assistant (CA) position should complete the CA application. Due to the changes in the university tax policy, only students who reside in the U.S. can apply. The deadline to apply is Thursday, July 22. 

Course assistants are expected to work on average 10 hours per week for eight weeks.  The program pays an hourly rate of $15. Course assistants are employees of the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign; as such you will be required to complete new hire paperwork and an I-9. You will need to submit timesheets every two weeks. Reminders will be sent.


  • Students must reside in the U.S. (due to the change in university tax code, we are unable to hire students that live outside of the U.S.)
  • Students must be in good academic standing
Students must have successfully completed the course (with at least a grade of A or higher) that they are applying to be a CA for.
