This semester, PGSU has received numerous reports of paychecks with numerous fees applied to them, with little explanation. Some fees are applied all at once in one month instead of over the semester/year; for many fees it is difficult or impossible to find out their origin or reason. These reports have come overwhelmingly from first-year grads and international grads. Essentially, people seem to not know what they will be paid at the end of the month, and why they will not be paid their full amount. There is little transparency on payment from the administration.
To the end of having a detailed push for payment transparency, PGSU is trying to find out more about what exactly the paychecks of grads across departments look like. Please fill out our survey (below) so we can learn, despite the administration’s vagueness and lack of answers, about our paychecks.
