To give a wage increase at any other point during the year, contact the Office of Student Employment to discuss the options (detailed below). A formal review may be required to justify a merit raise.
Most pay raises can be initiated by the manager in Workday by using the following navigation:
Actions > Compensation > Request Compensation Change
Employers may elect to give student employees a $1-per-hour raise for work performed over the summer. This increase is not mandatory and must be requested in Workday. At the end of the summer, the per-hour increase is removed.
To promote a student, make sure that a higher-level job description is on file with Student Financial Services, and that the student meets the criteria of that job description.
All requests for such promotions are subject to the approval of the Office of Student Financial Services and must be submitted via Workday with the proper documentation.
Occasionally a student will exceed the standard performance for a given position. In order to qualify for consideration of a merit raise, the following must apply:
The student must have worked in the department for a minimum of one academic semester.
The supervisor must have completed a student employee performance evaluation form (pdf) at least one month prior to requesting the merit raise.
The supervisor should complete a compensation change in Workday and provide appropriate documentation.
