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 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.)

\$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.)
