Pursuant to the September 16, 2013 announcement by the University of Hawaii, the RCUH will also be implementing new Student Assistant pay rates and pay schedule effective October 1, 2013. 


All Student Assistants’ employed on October 1, 2013 will have their respective pay rates increased by 3%.  You do not need to submit any online or manual personnel action forms.  My office will initiate these pay rate changes for all Student Assistants.  However, after October 1, 2013, your project’s office must initiate any subsequent pay rates associated with Step Pay Rate changes (e.g., Step A3-1 to Step A3-2).


The new pay schedule is now posted on the RCUH website.  Go to > Policies & Procedures > Human Resources > 3.211 RCUH Student Employment.


Please plan accordingly as there will be another increase in the Student Assistant pay rates effective July 1, 2014.
