To a great extent, your pay scale is determined by the resources made available to the university for that purpose through state appropriations. You will be compensated to the best of its ability in accordance with its resources, your qualifications, market and internal equity considerations. Salaries and wages are based upon your position responsibilities. Minimum and maximum rates have been established for most job classifications on each campus. As a further guide in establishing equitable salaries and wages, the university periodically conducts area wage and salary surveys. Such studies help to ensure that the rate of pay you receive compares favorably with rates for work of a similar nature on the campus and in the relevant recruitment area.
