To hire a PCA, please refer to these guidelines:

  • Training: OIT is responsible for training and supporting PCAs to perform their job duties.  Training sessions will be scheduled at the beginning of each semester. If your PCA is unable to attend a scheduled training, please email to schedule a training.
  • Supervision/Management: Each school is responsible for managing their PCAs and making their own personnel decisions.  Any changes to PCA personnel should be communicated to OIT HR. OIT HR will check-in with the school contact(s) each semester to determine personnel needs for the following term. 
  • Payment: PCAs are paid $600 per semester. The payments are dispersed bi-weekly until funds are exhausted. OIT will fund up to four PCA positions per program per academic term. Additional PCAs must be paid for by the school which they serve.
