Thank you for your interest in the Math Learning Assistant (LA) Program. We invite undergraduate students with excellent math and communication skills to become learning assistant in math courses from 090 through 181. Being a LA has traditionally been a weekly commitment of at least six hours per week, including assisting during lectures, hosting student drop-in hours on a regular basis, and meeting with the course coordinator and other LAs, with an additional requirement for new LAs to participate in a one credit hour math education course.


We are not accepting applications at this time, and we appreciate your patience as we finalize program decisions for the Spring 2021 semester.


Please complete the following interest form and a staff member will contact you as soon as further information about potential future LA positions becomes available.
