GSI Selection Process

Staff GSI Coordinators will be responsible for all GSI hiring. Official GSI offers will be issued from the staff GSI coordinators—offers from faculty are not official.  After faculty requests have been fulfilled the search begins to assign students to classes without faculty requests.

Selection Priorities

First Priority

EECS graduate students have the highest priority. Among them, students with guaranteed GSIs are the highest, and students who must fulfill the teaching requirement for the Ph.D. are second. Graduate students who need financial support are also a priority. Faculty requests also have priority.

Second Priority

Graduate students from other departments.

Third Priority

Undergraduates. Our own undergrads are quite often excellent GSIs, having taken the courses they will teach.
