I apologize, because I meant to note this in my prior email because we have so many new faculty this year.
Faculty who have been here awhile know this, but this is just a reminder for the new people of the 33% rule.
Faculty can only be paid up to three months of summer pay from any source. That means if you are teaching
during the summer that goes towards the 33%. We don’t know this is happening sometimes because it may
be another Unit processing a summer payment for you (i.e., OSCAR Office). The Provost Office looks at this
carefully and notifies us if someone is over the 33%. During the summer this can be painful because it requires
paying back the overage.
I just wanted to pass this along.
