State Job Classifications
Below are links to the official classified and unclassified state titles approved by the State Division of Human Resources.
For classified state titles, each class title is assigned a class specification. A class specification represents the official description for the position that includes examples of the kind of work and level of responsibility normally assigned to a position that may be allocated to a specific class. The class specification should be used as a reference or guideline when developing a position description that represents the duties and responsibilities of a single job.
If you are unsure which class title to select, first select the link provided below.
For job classifications having classified state titles, once you select the link, you are then prompted to choose a job category from the dropdown menu i.e. (AA) Administrative Services, (B) Information Services and so on. You are then prompted to select a job title which includes the assigned class specification details and assigned pay band. Each class specification includes the following information:
- General Nature of Work
- Examples of Work
- Knowledge, Skills and Abilities
- Minimum Requirements
- Pay Band/Salary Range
- Federal EEO Category
Remember, state job specifications should be used as a guideline in developing a position description for classified University positions.
As part of the implementation of the human resources portion of the Higher Education Efficiency and Administrative Policies Act of 2011 [HEEAPA], the Classification/Compensation Subcommittee of the Council of University and College Human Resource Directors completed the implementation of new unclassified titles for higher education. Effective April 1, 2014, the new unclassified titles are available for use at the University of South Carolina. As part of the implementation process certain unclassified titles were inactivated. A list of the new unclassified titles and the inactivated titles are available at the links listed below.
