Faculty members may receive up to three months summer salary in addition to their nine months of academic salary. The summer session is effective June 1 through August 31, and faculty members decide which months should be charged to research accounts and/or other approved sources. Federal research accounts are only permitted to be charged 90% effort per month. The additional 10% effort should be charged to a discretionary account if you are requesting a full month of salary. Payments will be issued at the end of each summer month and will be paid at the July 1 salary rates as a normal salary payment.
Each faculty member who is paid for the full three summer months is required to sign a form indicating that they are not taking a vacation during that period.
