Hello Teaching Assistants,
As some of you may be aware, Carleton does not issue the first pay check to Teaching Assistants until the end of the first month of each term.
Teaching Assistants holding a TA position of 130 hours can apply for the TA Advance, and receive short-term funding to help them bridge the gap in income.
Via the TA Advance, you can receive up to $750 in the middle of the first month of the term. Any amount received via the Advance is repaid to Carleton through automatic deductions on your first three pay check (250$ per pay check).
PLEASE NOTE the application deadline for the September 2023 advance is Friday, September 15th, at noon.
