Pay Rates

Pay rates for GSIs are based on how many semesters (not including Summer) you have worked as a GSI in the past.

  • 0-3 Semesters = Step 1
  • 4-5 Semesters = Step 2
  • 6-7 Semesters = Step 3

 Step 4 = Graduate Division approval is always required. At least 8 semesters of teaching experience; must be advanced to doctoral candidacy; duties are greater than GSI Steps I through III

For pay rates, click here. The percent of a position refers to both hours and pay. GSI pay is salaried, so a 50% GSI position would pay 50% of the monthly salary at the link, and demand 20 hours a week. Reader and tutor positions are hourly. A 25% position is 170 hours a semester; a 40% position is 272 hours a semester.

Pay rates for GSR's are based on a step system, with the step of the appointment at the employer's discretion. Current pay rates for GSR's can be found at the UCOP Academic Personnel website.
