Urgent request for information re: Grad Teaching

Dear All:

In response to a rather sudden/urgent request of our university administration, I've been asked to find out how many courses are taken by Graduate Teaching Assistants in other linguistics doctoral programs. At Cornell, for example, I believe that a student who was a TA was considered ''full time'' if s/he took 8 hours (2 courses); non-teaching grad students had to take 12 hours (3 courses) to be considered full time.

If I could quickly acquire information about the required course loads for teaching (vs. non-teaching) doctoral students in other ling programs, I'd be much obliged.

As time is critical here -- I need to know by tomorrow, 4/21, at about 11:30, I'd appreciate ANY replies I can get. Many thanks in advance.
