How to become a reviewer

Get started

Earn money by reviewing student project submissions. Prices range from $5-$50 per review, and are determined by the time and skills required for the review. The projects we are accepting applications for are surfaced for selection during your application.

The Application Process

Select projects you are interested in reviewing

Browse and select projects you are qualified to review. You may apply for up to 5 projects at a time.

Complete and submit the projects you've selected

For each project you applied for, you must first complete and submit the project. We will be evaluating your mastery of the project. You will receive a project review from one of our current reviewers and have limited attempts to meet all specifications in the project rubric.

Nanodegree program graduates who have already completed the project as a student do not need to complete this step.

We will notify you

Our Coaches will review your application information. New reviewers are added periodically as demand for reviews increases. You will be notified if you are eligible to start training reviews.

Learn about Reviewer Best Practices

We’ll teach you the basics for becoming a great reviewer in a short, one-hour course.

Submit Training Reviews

Once you’re off the waitlist, get certified to review a project by successfully completing a series of training reviews. If your review does not meet the Review Quality Standards, you will be asked to revise your review. Training reviews are not financially compensated.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much do reviewers earn?

The average payment per project is $25, but varies between $5-$50 depending on the time required to review the project. Note: Reviewers are not financially compensated for training reviews.


Will I get paid for training?

You will not be compensated for any training steps. Completing training is not a guarantee that you will be certified as a Udacity Project Reviewer.


Do I need to have a U.S. visa to participate?

No, a visa is not necessary, as this is a contract opportunity through Udacity. Project reviewers are not employees of Udacity. Code reviewer opportunities are available around the world. Your country's eligibility is dependent on PayPal's mass payment method restrictions. See a list of supported countries below.


Do I live in a supported country?

In order to receive payment, you must own a PayPal account in one of the following countries: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, China, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Emirates, Estonia, Finland, France, French Guiana, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Guadeloupe, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Malta, Martinique, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Reunion, Romania, San Marino, Singapore, Slovakia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States, Uruguay, Venezuela, Vietnam


Why isn’t my country on the list of supported countries?

Udacity pays project reviewers via PayPal mass payments, meaning that we can only certify reviewers in countries for which PayPal has enabled mass payments. If this changes in the future, we may allow reviewer applicants from more countries to participate in project reviews.
