Departments will maintain the approval to set their own starting wage for student employees as long as they do not exceed the maximum wage for the pay level. *Rates set within the S3 level that are above $11.00/hour require the approval of senior management and Student Employment Services.
Departments are encouraged to review their student wages on a regular basis to make sure they are in line with the student's performance, level of responsibilities and experience. In order to attract and retain students in the summer, it is encouraged that departments give consideration to paying higher wages due to the many options available for summer employment. A student may receive one rate for a job during the school year and a higher rate for the same job during the summer.
Senior management is defined as "managers or directors who report directly to a Vice President or President and Senior Officers."
