Salary Guidance FAQs

Updated: June 9, 2020 at 10:30 a.m.

Summer pay is not guaranteed compensation for faculty but can be charged for work being performed via telework if it benefits a sponsored project. If work cannot be performed, salary cannot be charged.

For new contracts executed for graduate students to work over the summer on a sponsored project, the students must be able to perform work either via telework or on campus in order to be paid on a sponsored project.
