COMPENSATION
VERSION 2: 5/30/2014
UC DAVIS SUMMER SESSIONS
Mechanisms for Summer Compensation
Provost’s January 2014 Decisions re Summer Sessions in
the Budget Model
Deans have delegated authority for approving summer
compensation, adhering to academic personnel policy and
monitoring limits of summer compensation. This authority
previously resided with the Summer Sessions office.
The UC Davis ladder salary cap for summer is a prudent
guideline but not a rule or policy. Deans have the authority
to determine appropriate compensation within the
constraints of UC policies. (The Summer Sessions salary cap
guideline remains $10,400.)
UC DAVIS SUMMER SESSIONS
Mechanisms for Summer Compensation
Provost’s January 2014 Decisions re Summer Sessions in
the Budget Model (Continued)
All summer session compensation should adhere to the current
Summer Sessions formula (2.75 percent per unit taught) to the
extent appropriate; this formula is a guideline and not a rule or
policy. Limitations on compensation during the off-duty summer
period are outlined in APM660, UCD 660, and APM 661.
Lecturers must be paid according to Article 23 –Summer Sessions of
the IX contract and compensation for those in Teaching Assistants
and Associates In titles must follow the compensation formula as
bargained in Article 24 –Summer Session of the BX contract. All
other requirements for recruitment and selection for summer
sessions positions for these appointees must follow the article of
the contract.
UC DAVIS SUMMER SESSIONS
Mechanisms for Summer Compensation
Direct Compensation (Instructors)
• Nine-month Annual Salary (X) # of Units (X) 2.75% = Total
compensation per course
• For fiscal year faculty, the nine-month equivalent is 84% of the 11month salary
• Direct compensation will be adjusted to reflect merit and
salary table increases effective July 1. However, time
worked in June will be based on the salary effective before
July 1
UC DAVIS SUMMER SESSIONS
Mechanisms for Summer Compensation
Direct Compensation (Continued)
• All compensation for the summer period must comply
with the limits for additional compensation as outlined in
APM 660, which is 3/9ths for academic year appointments
and 1/11th for fiscal year appointments
Research Accounts
• Per Office of the President (OP) guidance, UC Davis
Academic Affairs encourages compensating instructors
with salary instead of deposits to research accounts.

Retired Faculty
• Retired faculty may be recalled provided that
they have been separated from the University for
at least thirty days

• All recalls for summer session teaching must be within the
43% monthly limit for total recall salary
UC DAVIS SUMMER SESSIONS
Employee Titles
Recalled Instructors
•
•
Before recall is submitted, calculate total compensation for ALL courses
being taught by recalled instructor
Once current annual salary for recalled instructor is obtained, use the
following formula to determine the max monthly allotted amount:
• Annual Retirement Salary/9 (X) 43%
• Example: if annual is $103,000…
• $103,000/9 (X) .043 = $4,921 maximum monthly amount
• If this person is teaching one 4-unit course…
• $103,000 (X) 4 (X) .0275 = $11,330
• This amount divided by two = $5,665, which is higher than
$4,921 max monthly amount. If divided by three = $3,777,
which is lower than $4,921
