Pay Rate Changes (Hourly Students, Graduate Students, and Unclassified Temporary Employees)

Pay rate changes for hourly student, graduate student, and unclassified temporary employees may be entered into HRIS by departmental personnel following the Pay Rate Change (pdf) instructions. It is recommended that changes in rates of pay are to be effective only at the beginning of a pay period.

The wage rates for hourly student employees must meet or exceed the Kansas State University minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. Changes to the federal minimum wage and subsequently the K-State minimum wage will be automatically updated in HRIS. Notices will be sent to departments when hourly student pay rates are increased due to a change in the minimum wage.
