HR-216 Summer Appointments


Summer appointments have begin and end dates which generally fall between the end of the academic year and the beginning of the fall semester and are only available for persons whose primary appointments are for nine (9) months.  Faculty on Fully Benefit Eligible Academic, nine (9)- month appointments who have responsibilities in the summer are appointed on “Additional Pay” forms utilizing appropriate summer earn codes located in the Earnings Code Table, available from the campus Payroll Office.  Appointments coded as summer period count as creditable earnings for the University Retirement Program up to a maximum of 3/9 of 9-month salary. 


For faculty on nine (9)-month appointments, compensation for summer appointments may not exceed one-third of nine-month salary. 


All recommendations for summer appointments must be approved by the Chancellor, Vice President or designee.  Summer appointments, involving two (or more) departments, require signature approval from all departments involved.  All recommendations must be submitted in advance to permit time for review and approval.
