4.2.2 - Summer Employment and Compensation


All faculty members employed under academic year contracts are eligible for employment during the summer term for extra compensation. This extra compensation cannot exceed 33- 1/3% of their salary for the immediately preceding academic year contract (BoR policy 8.3.12.3). This 33-1/3% is from any funding source including grant funds or employment at another USG institution. The University makes no guarantee of availability of summer employment. Any employment opportunities are dependent on enrollment and the best interests of the University. Summer employment opportunities may include instructional or non-instructional assignments. Non-instructional assignments include sponsored program activities and/or other special assignments for the University (usually limited to high priority needs such as special initiatives) and require the prior approval of the faculty member’s college dean. Compensation for instructional assignments is normally at the rate of 10% of the faculty member’s academic year salary for a three-semester hour course; colleges may have alternative compensation models based on class size. Summer compensation for field supervision and individualized course instruction will be based upon the approved equivalents of such activity per semester hour or per 3-hour semester course. Compensation for non-instructional assignments will vary with the assignment and should be based on the percentage of time devoted to the project. For example, if a faculty member devotes approximately half a full-time summer commitment to the non-instructional assignment, they would be paid 15% of their academic salary. Faculty employed during the summer term are to be paid in two checks, one on the last working day in June and the other on the last working day in July.

Faculty members serving in nine-month limited term faculty positions during the Spring Semester preceding the summer term may be eligible for employment during the summer term on an as needed basis. The compensation during the summer term cannot exceed 33-1/3% of their annual nine-month limited term salary for the immediately preceding academic year. All other policies and procedures for full-time contracted faculty summer employment and compensation will apply.
