Please direct all students you wish to hire as your Teaching Fellow to the Department Coordinator.
There is a strict limit of 2 positions (or 20 hours/week) per fall and spring semester. There is a strict limit of 1.0 position during the Winter Intersession and each summer session. A student may hold one or more positions in a term or module as long as the commitment is for no more than an average of 20 hours per week or 2 full positions. A student may hold as many as 3 grader positions per semester, as long as the 20 hours per week average is not exceeded.
Faculty members are responsible for the quality of the students they hire and for overseeing the quality of their work. Please note that if a student is released from a position or decides to leave that position prior to the end of the term, the amount of his/her compensation is prorated. Faculty members may use their STARS accounts to pay for eligible TFs, graders, and tutors over and above amounts they are qualified to be paid for by Stern. TFs, Graders and Tutors will be charged to an individual faculty member’s STARS allocation if the class size does not meet the minimum enrollment of 25 students or if a faculty member wants to pay more than $24 per student for graders and tutors. Faculty may hire non-Stern graduate students as TFs only in the event that they are unable to hire Stern students with the appropriate background.
