Dual Degree Students

In order to work as a Teaching Fellow, Graduate Fellow, or Grader/Tutor, Stern Dual-Degree students must have completed 9 or more credits, have a GPA of at least 3.0, and be enrolled in the semester which they plan to work. All students must have taken the course or its equivalent and have approval from the department coordinator.  Full-Time and Part-Time employees of NYU are not eligible for the Teaching Fellow or Graduate Fellow programs. 

Compensation is dependent on enrollment, course credit load, and other factors. Compensation type depends on your enrollment status at Stern. Students enrolled at Stern for the semester in which they work will receive compensation in the form of tuition remission unless they have a 100% scholarship/sponsorship or have exceed the amount of tuition remisison allowed.  These two exceptions will be paid via payroll and are subject to taxes.  Students enrolled in Non-Stern professional programs (Law, Medical, Dental) for the semester in which they work, will receive compensation in the form of tuition remission at that school. Students enrolled at any other Non-Stern school are not exempt from the collective bargaining agreement of the UAW-Local 2110 for Graduate Employees at New York University and will receive compensation via payroll which is subject to union dues and taxes.  Graders and Tutors are exempt.  For more information, please visit www.makingabetternyu.org/gsocuaw/ or contact Local 2110 at gsoc@2110uaw.org.  Please note that once an application has been approved by the Teaching Assistance Center the compensation amount cannot be amended due to an increase or decrease in the course enrollment.
