UConn GTA(s)

The School Psychology Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) help provide support to both students and faculty. They assist faculty with their courses or administrative program tasks. Current students are welcome to consult with them regarding general program questions or seek advice (as the GTAs have advanced standing and/or prior school psychology experiences).  Prospective students are also welcome to email them with general admission questions (please contact SASP for specific questions about applications or interview day).
