Pay Rates for Student Employees
Undergraduate Students - General Employment
Undergraduate students working within University Libraries will be paid $7.70 per hour.
Graduate Student Assistants
Graduate students participating in the GSA program (e.g., students from the School of Library and Information Science working in positions which provide pre-professional experience) will be paid at the rate of $8.15 per hour.
There are currently no graduate student assistantships (limited benefits attached) within University Libraries.
Students in Non-Kent State Programs
Occasionally, University Libraries will employ students, usually from local secondary schools, in training programs such as the current Transitions Program. Typically, such students are paid from their own program funds. Any commitments of this kind should be coordinated by the Dean's Office through the Student Employment Coordinator so that we, as an organization, are aware of the names and status of all students working at University Libraries.
Pay rates which exceed those stated above must be reviewed and authorized by the Dean of University Libraries or a designee. Exceptions will be made primarily on the basis of demonstrated on-campus demand for the specific skills needed. Lacking such a demonstration, the case must be made that the skills and/or level of responsibility required significantly exceed those called for in "Specialized Positions."
Falsification of payroll documents related to student hiring and employment (e.g., pay raise authorization form, Kronos) will result in termination of the student and a referral to the Student Conduct Process. Supervisors who falsify payroll documents will be subject to a formal disciplinary process.
