Academic Student Employees - Instructional Student Assistants (ISA)

Under supervision, Instructional Student Assistants in this classification perform teaching, grading or tutoring duties for the majority of work hours in a given appointment in a given academic department or equivalent administrative unit over the course of an academic term. Assignments are made by academic department or equivalent administrative unit by a specific supervisor at a CSU campus. The work may be performed on-campus or at an off-campus public agency or private non-profit organization under an agreement with a campus in the CSU system.

Incumbents in this classification work part-time (typically 20 hours per week) during academic periods and may work full-time during academic break periods. Incumbents may have concurrent assignments in other Student Assistant classifications as long as the maximum hours are not exceeded. If the work is to be performed off- campus, CSU will assign a specific on-campus supervisor who will coordinate supervision and assignments pursuant to the terms of the agreement with the off-campus public agency or private non-profit organization.
