An In-Range Progression is a permanent salary increase to a staff member's base salary. Such an increase is campus funded from departmental budgets and is made within the existing salary range established for the classification, or within the skill level sub-range for classifications with skill levels.
An In-Range Progression is not a request for a classification review nor does it change the employee's position (class code or skill level). For a classification review, please refer to the Compensation Services webpage.
In-Range Progressions can be accessed via the Classification/Compensation Action Request System .
HRDI, Classification and Compensation will notify an employee of the outcome of an In-Range Progression request. If a salary increase is granted, it will be effective the beginning of the pay period following the date the form is received in HRDI, Compensation Services.
In-Range Progressions shall not be retroactive.
Initiating an In-Range Progression
An In-Range Progression is initiated through the Classification/Compensation Action Request (CCAR) system and, based on the selected criteria, may require an updated position description and organizational chart.
Note: Action Requests that are incomplete or have incorrect documents attached will be cancelled by Human Resources and will need to be resubmitted.
Management Initiated Request
An employee may be eligible and granted one or more In-Range Progression increases in a given year if requested by management. The rationale for an additional IRP, within a 12-month period, must include a new and appropriate justification for the request. However, a request for an IRP using “extraordinary performance” as criteria may be submitted only once in a given year based on the effective date.
The immediate management supervisor must initiate the In-Range Progression request through the Classification/Compensation Action Request (CCAR) system.
Note to Managers: It is important that no commitments be made to the staff member regarding a salary increase until Human Resources has evaluated and approved the request. The employee will be notified by Human Resources on the status.
