III.         POLICY

 

Academic year (nine-month) appointees in eligible titles may be compensated for extramurally funded research projects and/or programs during the summer recess (first day of summer recess through last day of summer recess). The eligible titles/series are: Professor, Professor in Residence, Adjunct Professor, Supervisor in Physical Education, Lecturers and Senior Lecturers; including acting and visiting appointees in these titles. The amount of compensation is governed by the following restrictions:

 

A.       Total compensation, from extramurally funded research projects and/or programs, Summer Session teaching, and University Extension teaching, is limited to three-ninths of the appointee's annual salary.

 

1.       A faculty member accepting a full-time appointment in Summer Session may not receive additional compensation from extramurally funded projects and/or programs during the period they are employed by Summer Session.

 

2.       A faculty member accepting a half-time appointment in Summer Session may receive half-time (50%) additional compensation from extramurally funded projects and/or programs during the period they are employed by Summer Session.

 

B.       Three-ninths of annual salary may be earned during the summer by working full-time for

57 working days (*defined as Monday through Friday, including academic and administrative holidays which count as time worked) during summer recess. Fifty-seven days is based on the average number of teaching days in a teaching quarter and is intended to provide the appointee with the opportunity to earn three-ninths of his/her annual salary in the same period of time that would be required to earn a comparable amount through teaching. One-ninth salary may be earned by working full-time for 19 days during summer recess.

 

C.       It is the policy of the San Diego Campus to use July 1 salary rates for all additional summer compensation paid during the summer recess (e.g., beginning in mid-June through mid-September), except for Summer Session salaries which are By-Agreement or based on the regular academic salary rate paid on June 30.

 

IV.         PROCEDURES

 

A.       A Payroll/Personnel System (PPS) update action must be processed to effect additional summer compensation for teaching or research.

 

1.       Salary rates should reflect current status unless the department has been officially notified of an approved merit or promotion. Departments are responsible for initiating the update to PPS to reflect revised summer salary rates for retroactive merits and promotions. Exceptions are:

 

a.       Summer Session salaries, which are based upon the salary rate as of June

30 of the calendar year in which Summer Session is taught.

 

b.       Any salary payments which are stipulated as “By Agreement.”

 

2.       Salary payments for extramurally funded teaching and/or research are made from Academic Salaries - account 600000, which requires no Payroll Time Record (PTR) submission. Salary payments from General Assistance -account 620000 can only be processed in cases where there is variable time reported on multiple funding sources. Departments effect salary payments in these cases for extramurally funded teaching and/or research by submitting the appropriate PTR to the Payroll Division.  Exceptions are:

 

a.       Payments for Summer Session salaries are effected by the Payroll Division upon receipt of a special time reporting form submitted by the Summer Session Office.

 

b.       Payments for University Extension teaching are processed by University

Extension.

 

3.       The service period for summer research and/or teaching starts with the first day after the end of the spring quarter and ends the day prior to the start of the fall quarter. This includes a portion of the month of June, the months of July and August and a portion of the month of September. The pay for summer service may be received in the July 1, August 1, September 1 and October 1 paychecks.

 

a.       If a faculty member wishes to receive payment for June service in the July 1 paycheck, the pay period would coincide with the summer recess period (mid-June through mid-September). The faculty member would then be

eligible to receive up to 50% of one-ninth annual salary for June, up to 100% of one-ninth annual salary for the months of July and August, and up to 50% of one-ninth annual salary for the month of September.

 

b.       If a faculty member does not provide research or teaching service during the June portion of the summer recess, or if the faculty member does provide service during this period but does not specify preference for payment on July 1, the pay period will be from July through September, and the faculty member would be eligible to receive up to 100% of one-ninth annual salary each for July, August, and September.

 

4.       Payments (at the distribution level in PPS) with any dates other than the first of the month through the last day of the month will automatically pay half of the monthly rate. A payment for June 14th - June 30th will pay half of the monthly rate. Similarly, a payment set up for July 1st through July 30th (instead of July 31st) will also pay half of the monthly rate.

 

5.       An academic-year faculty member who is on an approved leave without pay, the dates of which overlap the summer period (i.e. fall quarter leave without pay 7/1/xx-10/31/xx), may still receive additional summer compensation for that period. However, since the leave code '08' at the employee level in PPS halts pay for the entire leave period, special arrangements must be made to pay the additional summer compensation. In such cases, the department should call the Academic Personnel Office and the Payroll Office to make arrangements for the pay adjustment.
