The System-wide Pay Plan includes title code assignments and provides standardized title descriptions, standardized position restrictions and assigned pay grades for affected positions across the Texas A&M University System. Most staff positions at Texas A&M Engineering, like other Texas A&M System Member institutions and agencies, are included in the pay plan. Faculty, faculty-equivalent research, graduate assistant, student and as well as certain key administrator titles are excluded from the pay plan, and therefore will not have a standardized job description or assigned pay grade.

System-wide Pay Plan Titles

Below are lists identifying the new title codes, associated title descriptions and pay grades as applicable:

Pay Plan Titles with Position Descriptions

The Salary Pay Grade Chart represents the delegation of authority for pay rates applicable to newly hired employees. The first band will require Engineering HR review/approval before an offer may be extended. The second band will require additional approval by Engineering Administration or designee. 

For example, pay grade three has an assigned range of $9.79 to $16.32.  A starting pay rate for a new employee from $9.79 to $11.74 will only require approval by Engineering HR.  Should a hiring rate be requested from $11.75 to $16.32, the request would need to route through the department/division head, through Engineering HR, to Administration for final approval. Please submit a Hire Above Range request for a proposed rate above the HR approval range.
