This Student Rate and Title Change (STURAT) guide for EPAF approvers applies to approving a change in the hourly rate or title of an existing student employee's job. If the change is retroactive, an EPAF for Student Adjustments should be submitted and approved instead. For all EPAF guides, refer to the Information for EPAF Users web page.


Generally, EPAFs must be submitted about two weeks before the end of a pay period. Adhere to the EPAF Approval Deadline column of Payroll's Pay Schedule table to ensure timely and accurate payroll for employees. EPAFs submitted after the deadline will be paid on the next available pay period. For a special check request, please contact Payroll.
