Salary Increases & Reviews


Employees covered by collective bargaining agreements receive wage increases in accordance with the provisions of their respective agreements.

For Other Employees

Your salary and job performance are typically reviewed once a year by your supervisor or department head. Quality and quantity of work, changes in level of responsibility, interest, attendance, and cooperation are among the factors considered in a performance review.

Salary increases are based on your performance and on University and departmental budget allocations.


All salaries for Officers of Instruction are subject to review by the relevant dean, department chair, or vice president, as well as by the Office of the Provost on the Morningside Campus or the Office of the Vice President for Health Sciences at the Medical Center.

Salary review for all officers typically occurs before July 1 of each year.

Support staff members not covered by a collective bargaining agreement generally have salary reviews on the anniversary date of their hire or last promotion.
