Job Classifications

The student employment job classification and compensation system is designed to establish consistent hiring and pay practices for all student employees throughout the college.

Student salaries must be at a wage no less than the minimum required by the law and may not exceed the maximum of the salary range established for the position.

The position's level and salary is determined by the student employee's job responsibilities, knowledge, skills and level of supervision needed.

Faculty and Staff at Ithaca College are eligible to supervise student work. Federal Regulations require that individuals overseeing actual job duties and performance should approve hours worked for payroll.

When creating new assignments for newly hired students in IC HR Cloud, supervisors will need to use the appropriate level and series that correlates with the job duties that will be assigned to the student they are hiring. For your reference, below is a breakdown of the various levels and series that Ithaca College currently uses as well as the current approved student pay structure, updated annually.
