With funds from the FY 2008 block grant and tuition maintenance increase, we have allocated a 4% increase to improve student hourly wages.

Furthermore, with the pay period beginning June 17, 2007, the on-campus minimum wage for student hourly personnel will increase from $7.00 to $7.25 per hour, approximately 3.6%.

The supplemental allocation to your unit is intended solely for the purpose of increasing the hourly rates paid to students in your area. It should not be used to increase the number of student employees or the number of hours your students currently work. The expectation is that most students who are performing their duties satisfactorily will receive a raise of approximately 25 cents per hour, especially those making less than $8.00 hourly. We will leave to units the determination of individual salaries and increases. All students should benefit from this program, not just those students who are funded with general-use funds. I ask that students paid from restricted fees, grants, housing, parking and other funds be given increases on the same basis as students paid from general-use sources.

Further instructions concerning the process of implementing the increases in the HR/Pay system will be sent to departmental Personnel Related Staff by HR/EO.

If you have any questions, please call Lindy Eakin, 864-4904.
