OUR Clemson

Bonus information for FY2022-23


On July 7, faculty and staff were notified of a general base increase and bonus as part of this year’s compensation. Visit the July 7 Special OUR Clemson.  

This year’s state proviso provided institutions of higher education the flexibility to implement their bonus programs without uniformity. With a combination of state and university funding, Clemson University made the decision to support a bonus program for those earning up to $100,000 in an effort to assist those faculty and staff disproportionately affected by the current economic trends. 

An update to the bonus portion of the compensation is provided below. Bonus-eligible employees will be paid their bonuses on October 31. 


To be eligible, the Clemson University employee must: 

  • be a classified or unclassified staff or faculty member in one of the following types of positions: 
    – Full-time Equivalent (FTE)
    – Time-Limited Positions (TLP), contract permitting 
    – Grant Positions (TGP), grant permitting 
  • work 30 hours or more weekly, 
  • have a Clemson University hire date of January 1, 2022, or before, and  
  • still work for the University.  

Bonus Amounts 

The bonus will be implemented as shown in the table below and is based on the employee’s base salary on January 1, 2022.
