Texas A&M System-wide Pay Grades

View Pay Grades | View Pay Ranges | HR homepage

On December 1, 2016, the Texas A&M System implemented a standardized collection of titles and salaries designed to be used for staff across the System. This collection of titles is the Texas A&M System-wide Pay Plan, and it enables all System Member institutions and agencies to have access to consistent information for new and existing employees.

Job titles, title codes, FLSA exemption status and pay ranges for titles used on our campus are available through the links below. Due to the high number of available titles not all System titles are listed here.  Standardized titles and job descriptions are available, and can be accessed by contacting the Human Resources office. 


The process of creating the System-wide Pay Plan began in 2014 with the aid of the PriceWaterhouseCoopers (Pwc) consulting group following an audit.  In an effort to streamline staff titles and promote efficient administration and consistency among System Members, The Texas A&M University System engaged PwC to develop a new pay plan with titles and pay structures for staff positions. The purpose of this plan was to reduce the overall number of titles used across the Texas A&M System and to promote consistency and efficient administration of compensation processes for all Texas A&M System Members.

The new titles and pay structures became effective December 1, 2016.

System-wide Pay Plan Titles

The Texas A&M System-wide Pay Plan is administered by the Pay Plan Administration Committee and the Pay Plan Administrator at the System level. Each pay plan classification has associated with it a job title, title code, salary pay grade, FLSA exemption status, and job family.

Staff Employees

The System-wide Pay Plan, effective December 1, 2016 includes title codes, title descriptions, standardized job descriptions (JDs) and assigned pay grades for all staff positions that are included in the Pay Plan. This includes most staff positions at Texas A&M University and all Texas A&M System Member institutions and agencies.

Staff positions that are excluded from the Pay Plan include Board-appointed executive titles and senior management titles, coaches and others. All titles that are part of the Pay Plan as well as a list of excluded titles are posted online.

Faculty, Faculty-equivalent Research, Graduate Assistant, Student and Other Excluded Positions

Positions in these categories are excluded from the System-wide Pay Plan, and therefore will not have a standardized job description or assigned pay grade.
