Student Academic Appointment (SAA)
A Student Academic Appointment is a form of internship that combines academic training with work responsibilities. Work responsibilities depend on the specific position. For example, associate instructors serve as instructors of record; graduate assistants are teaching assistants that serve as an assistant to a teaching faculty or lecturer.
