Compensation Change

For the 2023-2024 Academic Year, students will not be eligible for compensation increases as the Student Employment office instilled a $.50 raise for all students making $15.50 and are now supporting a minimum pay of $16.00 per hour. Performance Evaluations are still encouraged but will not guarantee an increase in compensation. Compensation changes or updates may be evaluated on a case-by-case basis; however, Student Employment reserves final approval rights for any submitted change.

For pay rate updates, student employee compensation rates should be determined strictly by the duties and responsibilities required to perform the job and not by the innate ability of a student employee, the student employee’s longevity on the job, or the availability of departmental funding. An updated description of duties that have been authorized by the department Program Administrator (Dean/MPP) should be submitted with each request to justify the requested pay rate.
