Other (e.g., agency-funded) 3%
Student Fees 10%

A student labor budget is assigned to each department based on the number of students assigned and the hours required for each position; additional hours are budgeted for break periods and summer. Departments are expected to adhere to their budgets by ensuring that students do not consistently exceed the assigned hours budgeted for the position. There are features in place through the TRACY UltraTime system that assists supervisors in this task.
