Policy

[horizontal rule]

Student Employment administers and monitors the student employee classification and compensation plan and policies. The office follows student compensation policies for the regulation of wage increases, hiring rates, wage changes, and position classifications.

Individual hiring units determine pay rates for specific student employee positions. Student Employment assists the hiring units with pay-rate questions and job-level determinations.

In general, the hourly student wage for individual student employees is determined by the individual hiring unit within the level based on the following:

  1. the hourly wage paid to other student employees who perform similar tasks for the unit

    and

  2. the skills that the student employee brings to the position.

Students may be hired at a rate up to the maximum of each student wage level. Initial pay rates are determined by the hiring unit’s administrative official based on the student’s expertise within the position and the hiring unit’s ability to pay. Additional pay adjustments within each wage level may be given only according to the evaluation guidelines established by each hiring unit.

The current student wage scale reflects four wage levels based on job requirements, type of supervision, and required experience.
