Hi Everyone,


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.


Thank you,
