Announcement regarding cost-of-living adjustments

The Washington State Legislature has enacted a series of cost-of-living adjustments (COLAs) as part of the operating budget for the 2017–19 biennium. Classified and administrative exempt staff received a two-percent COLA beginning July 1, 2017. This increase first appeared in the July 25 paycheck, which reflects work performed July 1–15.

Faculty members have also been allocated a COLA, and this increase will be paid after the completion of bargaining regarding the distribution of funds to faculty members. This process is anticipated to occur early in Fall Quarter 2017.

Please direct any questions to Veronica Zura, Director, Human Resources (; extension 7858) or Stuart Trippel, Senior Executive Director and CFO (; extension 4672).
