Pay Scale

We use a job classification process to ensure that all student employees are paid equally while working in similar positions. Each position is assigned a level based on responsibility, and pay is based on this level and number of years in the job. Students performing work within a specific pay level cannot be paid at a rate higher than the maximum rate within the assigned pay level.
