Pay Increases



You may be promoted to a higher job level by your supervisor provided there is an approved job description on file with the Office of Student Financial Services and you meet the stated minimum criteria for the higher level position.

All requests for such promotions are subject to the approval of the Office of Student Financial Services and must be submitted via the Student Employee Wage Adjustment Request Form. Additional written documentation may be required.

Summer Raises

Employers may elect to give you a $1-per-hour raise for work performed over the summer. At the end of the summer, the per-hour increase is removed.

Occasionally a student will exceed the standard performance for a given position. In instances of consistent exemplary performance your supervisor may request a merit raise for you in Workday. They may be asked to complete a performance evaluation for you.
