Position Numbers
The fol owing position number suffixes are used during the summer to distinguish the types of work being
done by academic faculty, nine month employees. The following suffixes are used at the end of the
academic year position number as follows: 000111- S1.
S1 - Summer I (May and June)
S2 - Summer II (June, July and August)
CE - Short Course - Continuing Education
SR - Academic Faculty doing Summer Research

In General:
1) Summer I and summer II classes are scheduled for standard times; we only rarely have custom
schedules (in terms of start week and end week) for the classes. This is communicated by the
Registrar.
2) Field session classes ARE scheduled as full day experiences with a start and end date that is
control ed by the department
3) Compensation for field classes is on a daily basis, with each day paid at 0.005405405 times the
academic year salary
4) Compensation for summer classes is 4.1667% of academic salary per credit hour. TA and grading
support included on an as needed basis, based on judgment of DH and Dean, within cost
constraints.
5) We try to have enrollment be sufficient that the cost available for instruction (35% of available
revenue) is greater than the instructional costs (faculty salary, fringe, TA support, etc.)
6) If we have to cancel a class, we ask the department if the enrol ment wil go up so that it does not
have to be cancelled. If it does not go up, AA and the dean’s office collectively agree on whether to
take the loss on the class or to cancel it. If canceled, it is the responsibility of the department to
cancel it with the registrar and send an email to registered students noting that it has been
canceled.

EXAMPLES:
Calculation of Compensation for Academic Faculty during the Summer FIELD-ONLY Sessions
To calculate the salary amount that academic faculty are to be paid for the summer FIELD, we use a daily
rate based on the academic year. The daily rate is calculated in the following manner:
37 weeks in an academic year
37x40 hours per week = 1,480 hours in the academic year
1,480/8hours = 185 days in the academic year
1 day/185 = .005405405
Example: Joe Smith has an annual base salary of $70,000.
Calculation: $70,000 x .005405405 = $378.38 per day
The $378.380 would then be multiplied by the number of days worked, and then by the percent of effort
for the time period.
Calculation of Compensation for Academic Faculty during the Summer Sessions
Compensation for summer classes is 4.1667% of academic salary per credit hour. This is calculated in the
following manner:
Example: Joe Smith has an annual base salary of $70,000.
Calculation: $70,000 x .041667 x 3 (# of credit hours) = $8,750
This would be the amount for teaching either a summer 1 or summer 2 course
Department Head/Division Director Summer Pay
Note that effective in summer 2017, all DHDDs will receive their 37.5 days of departmental summer pay
directly through Payroll, equally split between June, July and August. The specific dates no longer need
to be accounted for on the summer HR form. HOWEVER – this means that all DHDDs are only allowed
32.5 additional days that can be charged over the summer for either teaching and/or research.
