Pay Rates

The rate of pay for each job is determined by the specific responsibilities of the job, as stipulated in the job description on file at the Office of Financial Aid. At the University of Richmond, we have a four-tier wage rate structure.

Pay Rates and Job Responsibilities

Level I  $8.30/hour: Skills and knowledge that can be learned on the job, some independent decision-making in areas with low accountability, moderate level of responsibility and judgment for a variety of tasks, and tasks may be manual and/or repetitive in nature.

Level II $8.80/hour: Skills at a level higher than those that can easily be learned on the job, independent decision-making on routine tasks with moderate accountability, sound judgment in supervisor's absence, and general instruction from supervisor with little follow-up required. 

Level III $9.30/hour: Skills beyond those typically expected of an undergraduate student, independent problem-solving to complete tasks with high accountability, initiative and decision-making in planning and prioritizing work load of self and other student employees, strong analytical abilities, demonstrated leadership abilities, minimal supervision on routine tasks, and some follow-up on highly complex tasks. 

Level IV $11.05/hour: Highly specialized skills with no additional training needed to complete highly complex tasks, independent judgment in decisions with high accountability and confidentiality, high degree of mental activity, and may involve a great deal of supervisory duties. Position similar to staff position.

Summer Wages

The wage rates for hourly, web time entry jobs that are paid with University funds include a summer bump-up in the range of $2.00 - $3.00 per hour over the spring rates.  Positions paid on a lump sum or bi-weekly amount do not get paid this increase as it is already included in the pay amount. The summer increase is given to help students pay summer housing costs. The summer increase for 2017 is $2.00/hour which is in effect for any hours worked on or after May 7, 2017 and will return to the regular rates on August 27, 2017.
