GSAS strongly recommends that PhD students who are hired as instructors of record not supervise other PhD students who are hired as TAs for their course. If both students belong to the same union, one cannot supervise another. If the students belong to two different unions (i.e. the instructor is hired through the adjunct faculty union and the TA is hired through the graduate student union), please consult with the Assistant Dean of Faculty Affairs.

PhD students who are instructors of record can supervise MA/MS students who are hired as CAs (course assistants).
