Staff Salary Increases for Degree Attainment
To be considered for a salary increase for degree attainment, the staff member must
submit a written request to his/her supervisor indicating that he/she has completed
the educational degree. The request must provide justification of how the accomplishment
relates to his/her current job duties, the length of study required, and any special
requirements associated with the accomplishment. A copy of the transcript that provides
verification of the completion of the degree must also be submitted with the request.
If the request is approved, the increase in salary will be made effective at the beginning
of the next pay period following approval.
The amount of the increase for completion of a degree will be dependent on whether
there is a direct job relationship to current duties. This relationship must be documented
in the staff member's request and concurred with by the supervisor and division head.
