I have received a few offers for master's programmes but I am a bit puzzled about a few things.
In a offer letter, there were these following lines
"Graduate Assistantship Policy: Students enrolled in this program are not permitted to accept teaching assistantships, project assistantships, research assistantships, or other appointments that would result in a tuition waiver."
I am rather unfamiliar with the US system so I originally thought it meant that there will be no teaching assistantship s, project assistantships, etc. But am I correct in my understanding that I can take TA positions , just that they will not result in any guaranteed financial aid.( I.e. Is it like being a freelancer whilst a financial package is like being on a contract?)
