Readership appointments will be made and appointment letters will be emailed on a rolling basis as positions are available. In most cases Readership notification will not happen until until closer to the start of the semester (late July or August for fall appts.; late December or January for spring appts.), after enrollments have peaked. Note that most positions will be filled by students in the History department. Be aware that for readerships, courses with enrollments of 30-34 do not qualify students for partial fee remissions unless they hold a concurrent GSI or GSR appointment, or a second reader appointment. In such cases, the cost of the partial fee remission is shared proportionately by the hiring departments or in the case of most GSRships, the faculty member's research grant. You are responsible for notifying the other department of your appointments. GSI appointments will be made in mid-April for the following fall and spring semesters. Students who do not receive a GSI offer by mid-April will be placed in a pool for further consideration if there is a need for additional GSIs. The need for additional GSIs will not be known until closer to the start of each term. If you receive a Reader or GSI appointment you will be contacted by Campus Shared Servies, who will notify you of when and where to complete payroll paperwork. Any combination of appointments that exceed 50% time for the semester violates University policy unless you receive approval from your department's Head Graduate Advisor. International students cannot exceed working more than 50% time.
Course offerings will likely change. Courses with an asterik are in flux and could either require GSIs or Readers depending on departmental curriculum needs.
Please read the History Department Readership Policies, and the Graduate Division booklet "What you need to know about being a GSI, GSR, Reader or Tutor" for further information. Readers can be expected to read for up to 65 students. Additional pay is given for each student over 35.
