Comments: 
Revision ensures both equality of treatment between the teaching assistants or teaching fellows and research assistants and prevents students from enrolling in excessive SCH as a condition of employment rather than for pedagogical purposes. This will also allow teaching assistants and teaching fellows to focus on preparation for and the taking of exams instead of enrolling in coursework that should already have been completed. Effective 10/13/2011.
