* Students thinking of applying to be a TA for Multicultural Cooperative Workshop (MCW) in Fall Semester should be aware that it is not possible to do FLAG if you are selected as the TA training workshop schedule overlaps with the FLAG activity schedule. You may apply for FLAG, however, please mention that you have also applied to be an MCW TA in your FLAG application. As for students applying to be TAs for either SSAW (Study Skills and Academic Writing) or Introduction to Peer Leader Training, it is possible to do both your TA duties and FLAG although there is some overlap in the TA training and FLAG activity schedule.
