University Supervisor Hiring

University Supervisors are hired each semester on a contractual basis. Compensation is based on a per-candidate/credit hour basis. Contracts are typically issued during the first week of the academic semester. Before contracts can be issued, the Teacher Track Office must have a current resume, official transcript, and other applicable credentials on file.
