Student Employee Policies and Pay Rates

A “student employee” is defined as a UC student employed in a STDT AST 2, 3, 4 or By Agreement title, or a student from outside UC in the working title Special Student Assistant.


Pay rates for the Assistant Series are shown below. The same rates are usually used for Non-UC Students. The pay rate within the Student Assistant 4 range is determined individually for each position by the department and reviewed by Student Employment in conjunction with Human Resources, based on the complexity of specific assignments. Differential increases apply to Assistant 2 and 3 only.  Longevity and special recognition increases apply to all titles in the series but are not reflected in the job listing—only on the appointment in UC Path. For further information about differential, longevity, and special recognition increases, see PPSM 3, Exhibit A - Student Employees.
