Summer Appointment Submission Instructions

Summer Appointment Submission Instructions

The sections below address the types of summer appointments, the documentation paperwork required, and links to other resources.

In general, summer term assignments are executed by submitting a PAW with the appropriate documentation as needed through the Summer Upload Submission Form. This form will route the submission through its approvals, HR review, and finally, to payroll for processing.

 A single submission can cover the entire summer but only for the same type of summer work. For example, one upload can cover all summer teaching assignments in a unit, but any summer research work needs to be submitted on a separate form.

Summer Appointment PAW Instructions

Summer term assignments are unique due to the variable length of courses and how they are appointed for payroll. The summer term payroll dates span from June 16 to September 15, and pay dates must be within these dates. Any work overlapping into fall term must be paid as overload or on a separate assignment. In rare cases exceptions can be made, like international exchanges that require the summer appointment dates to match actual travel dates for insurance purposes.

Complete a PAW to cover the work and timeframe to be paid. DO NOT submit a PRF for summer pay.

The following instructions walk through the PAW fields and how to complete the PAW for a summer assignment. Examples can be found on the Example PAWs page:

The PAW can cover the entire summer term for the same summer appointment type in the same department. Reminder, do not combine summer teaching and research/admin on the same PAW, those must be submitted on separate forms.

Annual Salary: Enter the summer base rate/ see appointment type table above for details 
Annual Basis: 9
Position #: See Appointment Type table above

Dates/Index: Use the Index lines to show the dates of the appointments for the summer assignment
Examples: 6/16/-7/15, 7/16-8/15, 6/16-9/15 etc. 1 week minimum. If summer appointment less than 1 week (weekend class) spread the pay over 1 week.
