Compensation for Student Employees

Compensation Information Relevant to Student Employees

  • Salary Increases

    The employer determines frequency and manner in which raises are made within the three student job classifications. Student employees should be evaluated on a regular basis, typically once a semester. If the evaluation is satisfactory, an hourly pay rate increase within the classification wage range might be appropriate. Request Compensation Change is used to implement an increase for a future date.  Please allow time for approvals prior to the effective date.  Typically an hourly wage increase will be $0.25 or $0.50 but not exceed more than $1.00 unless there are substantive changes to the job.
