FYLI Financial Policy Summary

No funding is provided for Peer TAs for Winter and Summer Sessions. 

Fall / Spring FYLI Peer TAs

Each section of a FYLI certified course is eligible for Peer TA assistance at a rate of $1300 per Peer TA for a 3 credit or more section. Peer TAs are expected to work 10 hours per week, or 20 hours in a pay period. They are supervised by the section instructor. 

  • This works out to be equivalent to approximately $8.13 / hr x 10 hrs x 16 weeks (full fall /spring semester)
  • If the faculty requests more than one Peer TA to be hired for one class section, the total amount is split between all Peer TAs for that section.
  • If there is a 1 credit certified lab using a peer TA the amount given is $433.33
  • If a peer TA has a start date later than the start of the semester, his or her amount of pay will be pro-rated by the following formula. $8.13/hr x 10 hrs x # of weeks remaining in the semester.
  • Peer TAs must be enrolled as a full-time NAU undergraduate in the semester that they serve as a Peer TA. Graduate students cannot serve as Peer TAs.
  • Peer TAs cannot be working more than a combined total of 20 hours per week at NAU. 
  • International students who are to be hired as a Peer TA and have not worked on the NAU campus before need to contact FYLI, before starting the hiring process. 
  • Beginning fall 2016, Peer TAs are required to submit their weekly time online.  

Peer TAs are paid following the NAU Payroll Schedule.
