Did you coordinate your request with Deb Jorgensen who is the teaching assistant
coordinator ( She needs to know if you are a master's
student that is requesting priority because you need to fulfill your TA requirement
which is done at the last Residential Institute. The TA coordinator needs at least
one month's notice and it is better to give more.
For which course are you acting as a TA, if any?
WORK STUDY: Are you requesting to be in Work Study for this conference?
If so, is it to fulfill the Work Study requirement required of master's students at their

Did you coordinate your request with the Work Study Coordinator? See or e-mail She
needs to know if you are a master's student that is requesting priority because you
need to fulfill your Work Study Requirement which is generally done at the first
Residential Institute. In the Work Study application section where it asks you why
you should be selected, underline or bold that you are a Master's Student that
needs to perform this requirement (if the application allows underlining/bolding).
Also, you may note in the Work Study application what courses you would prefer to
be assigned - first, second, third, fourth, fifth choice. Prime positions tend to be
filled earlier. Work Study Coordinator usually needs 9 to 12 weeks advance notice;
but sometimes it can be less notice, especially if it is a smaller conference. Note: In
the Work Study Program, the cost of a course plus the certification attempt
presently is $700, plus $100 extra if paid less than 14 days prior to the event.
Course(s) for which you are doing Work Study, if any?

COURSES: What other courses are you taking at this conference? [A course
advisor contacts master's students within 30 days after the conference ends - See
Note C]
STUDENT MEETING: Generally there will be a meeting among students and
senior staff to which students will receive an invitation. If you are available, do you
expect to attend?

NOTE A: Students must pay for their own hotel room and hotel tax as well as their
other expenses for travel and food with the following exception: When a student is a
teaching assistant (TA) to satisfy the TA Community Project Requirement, the
Institute pays for the hotel room and hotel tax, but the student does not receive a TA
fee, and the Institute does not pay for any other expenses. When the student is a
TA under the general TA pool, the student receives a TA fee and the student's
authorized expenses are paid for.
NOTE B: Resid Institutes are the very large six-day conferences such as
SANSFIRE, SANS Annuals, SANS Network Security; CDI also qualifies though it is
not as large as the others. For the first RI where the Work Study is done, smaller 6-
day confs may qualify. Presentations can NOT be scheduled for Bootcamp style
conferences due to time conflicts.
NOTE C: The Course Advisor will ask if the student is encountering any problem
areas, provide guidance/suggestions, and may ask questions to see if it appears
that the student in general understands the subject area. Some students may not
need or want assistance; but we encourage students to consider using this extra
resource. If a student has concerns about course content that the Course Advisor
cannot answer, the student should contact General Faculty Advisor, Dr. Eric Cole.
And, Debbie Svoboda, at, is available to answer questions as Staff
NOTE D: There are other Community Project Requirements such as the Joint
Written Project and Awareness Talk that are not discussed above since they do not
directly affect the conference planning. Joint Written Projects can be assigned by
email when the student partners are ready to start, and they will have 30 days to
complete it after they receive the assignment.
