Salary Structures and Guidelines

Salary Administration refers to all components of wage administration and pay structure at UMBC, including but not limited to:

  • Monitoring salary structures and pay grades for exempt and non-exempt staff and making recommendations for update when necessary
  • Conducting internal and external market analysis to determine comparability and equity with existing University positions
  • Providing salary and benefits data for federal, state, and private compensation surveys
  • Developing career ‘ladders’ for existing job series to provide versatility in compensation options
