Most Fall term 2023 classes across the University are expected to be held face-to-face on campus or have a face-to-face component. Refer to the University’s Return to campus webpage (www.uwindsor.ca/returntocampus) for details about the policies in effect through the Fall 2023 semester.

Please note that before you begin work as a GA/TA, you must complete the new hire paperwork if this is your first employment contract or it has been a year since your last employment contract with the University and submit it to hr@uwindsor.ca. Please also ensure that if you have worked for the University within the last year that all legal documents are still valid. Once your contract is approved by Graduate Studies and is then processed by Human Resources, your employee number will be sent to you by email. This will allow you to complete the mandatory training which must be completed within the first two weeks of your contract. If your current study/work permit and/or SIN is set to expire during your GA/TA contract, you must notify the department immediately and provide updated valid documents to hr@uwindsor.ca prior to commencing work. https://www.uwindsor.ca/humanresources/services-initatives/employee-recruitment/student-appointments
