Advanced Study Increases

To recognize educational achievements, full-time unclassified University employees will receive a five hundred dollars ($500) base increase upon earning an initial Master's Degree or a two thousand dollars ($2,000) base increase upon earning an initial Doctorate Degree.  The increase is not retroactive unless specified in the appointment letter, but becomes effective at the beginning of the fall or spring semester following that in which the credit was earned and the Office of Academic Affairs was notified with receipt of an official transcript.  All increases shall be accomplished by a memo to the Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs initiated by the faculty or staff member's supervisor following receipt of the new degree.  The official transcript is to be submitted to the Office of Academic Affairs from the University awarding the degree.

Timing of Payment

Nine‑month faculty, and faculty or administrative staff employed on a twelve‑month basis are paid in twelve equal payments on the last day of each month.  Full-time nine-month faculty employed prior to the 1998-99 academic year that elected to receive payment in 10 months may continue to do so.

All personnel file documentation such as official transcripts, Application for Employment, and letters of reference must be submitted to the Office of Academic Affairs before the first day of employment.

Salary of Faculty Not Completing an Academic Year

hFaculty Departing at Mid-year (Academic)

Faculty departing at the end of the first semester of the academic year shall receive one-half of their salary for the year.

Faculty Departing or Hired During a Semester

Faculty who resign during a semester, who are hired as a replacement during a semester, who start a semester late, or who for some other reason do not complete a semester, shall be paid only for the time the faculty member has worked during the semester.  The amount paid to the faculty member for the incomplete semester shall be determined by multiplying the semester salary (one-half of the salary for the academic year) times the percentage of time worked during the semester.  All calculations shall exclude weekends, holidays and other faculty leave.

Faculty Departing During the First Semester

The percentage paid to faculty shall be determined by dividing the number of days from the date of the contract to the departure date (inclusive) by the number of days from the date of the appointment to the official end of the semester, inclusive, which is the last date grades are due.

Faculty Departing During the Second Semester

The percentage paid to faculty shall be determined by dividing the number of days from three working days prior to the date of spring freshman orientation to the departure date (inclusive) by the number of days from three working days prior to the date of spring freshman orientation to the official end of the semester, inclusive, which is the last date grades are due.

Replacement and/or New Faculty Hired During the First Semester

The percentage paid to faculty shall be determined by dividing the number of days from the date of the appointment of the official end of the semester or appointment, inclusive, which is the last date grades are due, by the number of days from the date of the faculty contract for that semester to the official end of the semester, inclusive.

Replacement and/or New Faculty Hired During the Second Semester

The percentage paid to faculty shall be determined by dividing the number of days from the date of the appointment to the official end of the semester, inclusive, which is the last date grades are due, by the number of days from three working days prior to the date of spring freshman orientation to the official end of the semester.

Faculty Departing during the Summer session

The amount received by the faculty member shall be determined by multiplying the summer session salary for the appropriate faculty rank by the percentage of the summer session worked.  The percentage of the summer session worked is determined by dividing the number of days beginning with the date of Summer Freshman Orientation to the day of departure from the University (both inclusive) by the number of days from summer freshman orientation to the last day to turn in grades (both inclusive).

Replacement and/or New Faculty hired during the Summer Session

The percentage paid to hired faculty shall be determined by dividing the number of days from the date of appointment to the last date to turn in grades (both inclusive) by the total number of days in the session.

Summer Salaries and Salary Supplements paid from Grant Funds

All grants funded through state and federal agencies must comply with regulations published by the federal Office of Management and Budget in "Principles for Determining Costs Applicable to Grants, Contracts, and Other Agreements with Educational Institutions"(A21).  This policy restricts salary payments to an amount no greater than a proportionate amount of the faculty member's base salary for work done during and outside the academic year.

In some cases grants may permit faculty members to earn salaries exceeding their annual base salary.  However, unless the funding agency gives specific written approval, salaries for faculty members may not exceed their base salaries.

Copies of all relevant policies are on file in the Office of Research Services and should be consulted by persons needing specific details.

Salary Rates for Academic Year

Charges for work performed on sponsored agreements by faculty members during the academic year will be based on the individual faculty member's regular compensation and are allowable at the base salary rate.  In no event will charges to sponsored agreements exceed the proportionate share of the base salary rate.

Periods Outside the Academic Year

Charges for work performed by faculty members on sponsored agreements during the summer months will be determined for each faculty member at a rate not in excess of the base salary.
