Summer Assignments Guidelines

Types of summer assignments and guidelines

These guidelines only apply to academic year faculty. Fiscal year faculty do not receive additional pay in the summer.

Teaching assignments

    • Summer teaching assignments for AY faculty are submitted by the program area’s degree or program director to academic personnel HR.
    • Per ACD 510-03, pay is 3.25% per credit hour of a faculty’s AY base salary from the preceding academic year (with established maximum):
      • 6 credits - 19.50% 
      • 5 credits - 16.25% 
      • 4 credits - 13.00% 
      • 3 credits - 9.75%
    • Established maximum base salary to calculate summer pay is $109,592.
    • Per ACD 510-03, teaching responsibilities in the summer sessions shall normally be limited as follows:
      • Summer six- and eight-week sessions: 6 credit hours
      • Maximum teaching responsibilities over all summer sessions shall not exceed 15 credit hours in a 12-month period.
    • If enrollment is low, the rate of a faculty’s pay could be reduced or courses may be cancelled based on the college’s budget needs. 

Research and Start-up pay

    • For research and start-up summer salary, the research advancement post-award team will work with faculty to establish pay and workload, and will complete related forms. No additional forms or offer letters are needed from academic personnel HR.
    • Faculty with summer research assignments cannot exceed a 100% workload (for all assignment types) during the summer semester. Per ACD 510-03:
      • Simultaneous involvement in summer session teaching and sponsored projects may not exceed 100 percent of compensated effort during a summer session.  This is referring to effort/FTE, not percentage of salary. The following percentages are established for each credit hour taught per session.
      • All Sessions:
          • 6 credits - 100%
          • 5 credits - 83%
          • 3 credits - 50%
          • 2 credits - 33%

Other types of assignments  

    • Academic personnel HR will work with Academic Success to identify administrative roles such as degree or program directors that require additional summer pay.
      • The maximum workload limits will also apply to administrative summer pay and will include teaching or research assignments.
    • If there are other types of assignments that do not fall under the above categories, please contact academic personnel HR for review.
