Supplements and Summer Salary


Salary supplements are awarded for a variety of reasons including temporary additional responsibilities and administrative duties. All salary supplements must be approved by Academic Human Resources (AHR).

Supplements include:

Administrative Supplement

An Administrative Supplement (ADS) is awarded to faculty who are appointed to the position of dean/chancellor, chair/director or director of a school/college/campus or an academic unit.

The dean/chancellor of the school/college/campus prepares a formal request to appoint a faculty member via documentation to the provost. Once ADS (and any appropriate title change) has been received, AHR will notify the unit.

Temporary Supplement

A Temporary Supplement (TPS) is awarded to faculty who are requested to assume temporary additional responsibilities. The unit must send an approval request via email to The email must include a description of the services to be provided, the duration of service, amount, unit level approval and dean/chancellor approval.

Note: Professional staff are allowed to teach a class for academic credit one time per year (7/1-6/30), while remaining at 100% FTE as pro staff, and be paid TPS on an appropriate faculty title, usually lecturer, part-time.  If the faculty appointment will exceed one class, it is expected the professional staff member will reduce their FTE percentage to accommodate the faculty appointment.

Endowed Supplement

An Endowed Supplement (ENS) may be awarded to faculty members who have been appointed as Endowed Professor or Chair as allowed under the terms of the endowment.

Summer Salary

If consistent with funding agency policy, faculty on 9-month academic year appointments may accept grant/contract appointments during the summer for periods normally not to exceed 2.5 months in any one summer.

A faculty member requesting to devote full-time effort for greater than 2.5 months in any one summer must submit their notification using this online form.
