Fringe Rate

Fringe Benefits are calculated on all regular employees of the University, including postdoctoral research associates and intermittent employees. Benefits are not calculated on graduate assistants or student workers. The fringe benefit rate is never negotiable. Intermittent employees who are not in a state retirement system are charged 8.2% fringe.

All proposals must include a 2% increase on the fringe rate for multi-year projects. A breakdown of these projected rates can be found in the table below and are included in the budget templates.
