Grader Information

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR GRADING APPLICANTS

If you are applying for a grading position in the School of Mathematics, please PRINT this page and read it CAREFULLY!

Pay and Hours

Please note: graders are responsible for following the guidelines below in submitting timesheets. Hours submitted will be closely monitored and should not exceed the maxima listed below. If you find that it is taking too long to complete your grading duties, please discuss this matter with your instructor.

If you are a graduate student receiving a teaching or research assistantship, you must obtain the approval of your graduate coordinator in order to apply for a grading position. Your graduate coordinator may impose additional hour limitations to the policies listed below.  Grading positions are paid hourly; you will NOT get a tuition reimbursement or a graduate assistantship for grading a mathematics course.

The current rate of pay for graders in the School of Mathematics is as follows:

For Undergraduate Courses:

For 3000 level or lower classes: \$8.50 per hour, for a number of hours up to the number of students enrolled, subject to a maximum of 60 total hours per semester, with the exception of large enrollments in Math 1522, 3012, 3215, or 3670. (For example, a grader for a class with 60 or more students can earn up to: \$8.50 x 60 hours = \$510 for the semester.)

For 4000 level classes: \$9.75 per hour, for a number of hours up to three halves the number of students enrolled, subject to a maximum of 60 total hours per semester. (For example, a grader for a 4000 level class with 40 or more students can earn up to: \$9.75 x 1.5 x 40 hours = \$585 for the semester.)

For Graduate Courses:

\$11.00 per hour, for a number of hours up to twice the number of students enrolled, subject to a maximum of 60 total hours per semester. (For example, a grader for a graduate class with 30 or more students can earn up to: \$11.00 x 2 x 30 hours = \$660 for the semester.)

Getting Paid

In order to receive a paycheck, graders must submit BIWEEKLY TIMESHEETS. After your hiring is approved, you will receive information from our financial team with a packet containing employment paperwork, a pay schedule for turning in timesheets, and a blank timesheet for the first pay period. On your first day, you MUST go to the Office of Human Resources, where you will turn in the completed packet of employment paperwork.

Please note that you are responsible for completing and turning in your timesheet. The total number of hours that you submit for the semester should not exceed the number allowed, as indicated above.

Timesheets are due back NO LATER THAN noon on Thursdays, the day after the end of the biweekly timesheet period. If you submit your timesheet after this deadline, you may not be paid until the next pay period. Please talk with our financial team if you are unable to submit your timesheet by this deadline.
