Re:     Addition of Student Assistant Title Code Grades


As you may be aware, Human Resources has initiated data clean-up efforts for key data fields in the Payroll/Personnel System (PPS) that will be used during the conversion and migration of local PPS data to PeopleSoft/UCPath.  One of the requirements for this transition is to ensure that all title codes are assigned to a salary grade with a minimum and maximum salary rate.  Since February 2014, HR has been reviewing the Student Assistant title codes and Non-UC Student title codes to make the necessary modifications to comply with the future requirements.  As a result, salary grades are being established for several student-related titles now and for others throughout the coming year.   

Next Steps:

  1. Ensure that the salary grade is included when setting up casual-restricted appointments in PPS using TCs 4920 and 4921of the Student Assistant series. (See chart below.)


  1. Ensure that the salary grade is included when setting up limited appointments in PPS using TCs 4923 and 4924 of the Non-UC Student series. (See chart below.)


  1. Update the salary grade field in PPS for all active appointments in any of the title codes listed below if the appointment will continue through Fall quarter.

The Student Assistant 4 (TC 4919) and Non-UC Student 4 (TC 4925) have not yet been assigned salary grades.  As mentioned in the June 20, 2014 memo to PPS Preparers and Reviewers, HR has established a recommended salary range maximum of $35 per hour for TC 4919 and 4925.  Hourly pay rates for incumbents employed in TC 4919 and 4925 should not exceed $35 per hour.
