At this point I need all students who are interested in
working as a TA, including the students who have a TA-ship
as part of their offers, to fill out a TA application form.

Only students coming as International Visiting Graduate Students through
the IVGRS program should submit a copy of their academic transcripts
with their application.  All other incoming students are not required
to submit their transcripts.
