Staff Pay Grades Structure & Salary Ranges

The pay grade structure adopted by Pacific University applies to both exempt and non-exempt positions. Comparability adjustments made in 2016 were set to ensure that all staff are paid closer to the grade midpoint for their position, depending on years of service.

Differences between grades are substantial. Reclassifying a job from one grade to another requires substantive changes in the level of work being performed and the corresponding qualifications to perform that work. Signficant market changes may also drive changes in classification over time.

Numerical grades have been assigned to each range. Grade assignments appear on new hire confirmation letters and on job descriptions.
