Human Resources Manual > Compensation >Salary Ranges
Policy Number: 704 Effective Date: 11/1/98
New: Revised: x

704.1 STATEMENT The salary range assigned to a level/grade is based on the salary dollars the University pays for that level of job content. 
704.3 PROCEDURES Midpoint
The midpoint is a position within a salary range that is used to establish the range minimum and range maximum.  Salary ranges are adjusted periodically due to market conditions and when financial resources are available. 

Minimum and Maximum

  • The minimum of the range is the lowest salary the University will pay for a job in the level/grade.
  • The maximum of the range will serve as a guide for the highest salary the University will pay for a job in the level/grade .  Any hiring offer or salary increase which exceeds the range maximum must be approved in advance by the Provost, the Executive Vice President or appropriate Vice President.
Level/Grade Structure
Each fiscal year the University establishes salary ranges for all levels/grades.  The University's Integrated Grade Structure and the AAP Salary Structure are published by the Human Resources departments. 

Salaries below the Minimum or above the Maximum
Individuals whose salaries fall below a newly established range minimum will be increased to the new minimum when salary ranges are adjusted.  Any salary which falls above the maximum of the range must be approved by the Provost, the Executive Vice President or appropriate Vice President. 

704.4 RESPONSIBILITY The University and Medical Center Human Resources departments develop, administer, and interpret the University's compensation policies.
704.5 RESOURCE Contact the appropriate Human Resources department if you have questions about this policy or if you would like more information.
