Helpful Information 

  • The "Regular Job" rate listed above is BYU-Idaho's minimum wage (which is higher than the Federal minimum wage of $7.25).
  • Rate increases may be granted at the beginning of each semester—as determined by departments (within their alloted budgets).
  • Departments are encouraged to offer a shift differential of 30 cents per hour for students whose work schedules start and end between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m.
