Grader Information

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR GRADING APPLICANTS

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

Pay and Hours

Graders are paid on a stipend basis. 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 by a fixed hourly rate based on number of students enrolled in a course; 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: $9.50 per hour, for a number of hours up to the number of students enrolled. (For example, a grader for a class with 60 students can earn up to: $9.50 x 60 hours = $570 for the semester.)

For 4000 level classes: $11.00 per hour, for a number of hours up to three halves the number of students enrolled. (For example, a grader for a 4000 level class with 40 students can earn up to: $11.00 x 1.5 x 40 hours = $660 for the semester.)

For Graduate Courses:

For graduate courses, $13.00 per hour, for a number of hours up to twice the number of students enrolled. (For example, a grader for a graduate class with 30 students can earn up to: $13.00 x 2 x 30 hours = $780 for the semester.)
