How are on-campus instructors paid in summer?
Departments must complete appointment paperwork for all summer instructors, including faculty, and adjuncts.
Note: OASIS does NOT trigger payment of graduate students in summer. Appointment paperwork must be completed.
Departments are allowed to send in appointment paperwork for summer instructors only once they have received their approved summer budget from the Arts & Science Summer office.
Note that instructors in the summer are paid on the Arts & Science summer budget account, but paperwork is completed by the department offering the course.

When should I appoint summer instructors?
Departments should send in appointment paperwork starting in March and up until mid-April, once they receive their approved summer budget with salary amounts from the Arts & Science summer office.
How do I request my department's summer budget?
Your department's summer budget is posted under your department's Q number in 10-95006. Line by line budgets are available in OASIS. Please call our office for any related questions.
