To attract and retain the most talented individuals, Boston University maintains a flexible and competitive compensation policy. When determining salaries, the following factors are considered:

  • Level and scope of responsibilities
  • Required education
  • Required skills and relevant experience
  • Internal and external equity
  • Department’s budget

Salaries are a critical component of total rewards, which is why the University considers an individual’s specific experience and education as it relates to the requirements of a position.

Salary Grades and Ranges

Please note: while positions are aligned with a pay grade, internal equity is also a factor in determining pay. The recommended recruitment range of pay for a given position is generally a subset of the pay grade range; it is not typically equivalent to the entire range of the pay grade.
