Thanks to the new state budget approved by lawmakers and signed by the governor, Virginia state employees who were employed as of March 10, 2021 and in good performance standing as of their last evaluation will receive a five-percent salary increase in the fiscal year that begins July 1.

The five-percent increase applies to classified staff, full-time, and adjunct faculty.  Also, as allowed by state budget language, VCCS will extend the five-percent increase to our part-time P-14 colleagues statewide effective with the first hourly pay date.

Important note: employees will see the increases at different dates, depending on their employment status.

  • 12-month and classified workers in good standing should see the change in their July 1 paycheck.
  • Less than 12-month faculty will receive their 5 percent increase effective with the pay period August 16-31, 2021 to coincide with their new fall contracts. They will see their increase reflected in their September 1, 2021 paycheck.
  • Adjunct faculty will receive their 5 percent increase effective with the pay period August 13 – 26, 2021 to coincide with their new fall contracts. They will see their increase reflected in their September 10, 2021 paycheck.
  • Wage employees will receive their 5 percent increase effective June 18, 2021 to coincide with the wage pay period. Wage employees will see the increase reflected in their July 16, 2021 paychecks.
