9.12.2 Summer Pay
Summer faculty pay for full-time academic year employees is based upon a maximum rate of 3% of regular salary per credit hour with a total summer salary not to exceed 27% of regular salary w/o approval of the Dean and Provost. UNG policy does not allow summer salary to exceed 31% of contracted salary. The rate of pay for a course is subject to being prorated based upon the number of students in a course.
Summer 2013 part-time faculty will be paid the part-time rate per credit hour as recorded on the faculty member’s summer salary letter.
Beginning summer 2014 part-time faculty will be paid at a credit hour rate of $800 for non-terminal degree and $900 for terminal degree. Part-time faculty teaching science labs will be paid $1000 per lab credit hour. Any variation in part-time compensation must be approved by the Dean and the Provost.
Deans and Directors are responsible for reviewing summer course enrollments. A decision to pay full summer salary or reduce a summer salary may be based upon such factors as low enrollment, average course enrollment across the unit, course rotation requirements, and student needs. Faculty do not receive summer pay for courses which are canceled. A decision on what constitutes a low enrollment course and whether or not to reduce pay or pay the regular rate for a course is based upon professional judgment and not on a prescribed formula.
Since budget is allocated by departments and colleges and is not separated by campus location, it’s important that Deans and Directors view summer budgets and summer course enrollments as a whole “across all campuses” rather than as separate campus locations.
