The University does not have a federally negotiated fringe benefit rate. Fringe benefits are specifically identified to each employee and are charged individually as direct costs. These costs include payroll taxes, health insurance, retirement and life insurance.
Below are two documents that provide further information and guidance on fringe benefit rates:
Effective January 1, 2015, any employee (including students, contractual staff, and adjunct faculty) working over 30 hours/week or teaching over 75% of a full-time course-load will be eligible for health benefits. Budget fringe benefits for these individuals at the full-time rate listed above.
