Summer 2011 Summer Session Office For New adjunct appointment, Summer Session Office will make a copy of the zeroed out PAF and send original to HR to do intake, compliance and establish identity in Banner – original contract filed in personnel file Remember your pre-requisites Remember your pre-requisites background screening requirementbackground screening requirement credentialingcredentialing For additional pay for permanent faculty – SS will keep original zeroed PAF– nothing goes to HR on these SS retains zeroed PAFs and determines dollar amounts to confirm pay with departments once final enrollment is established and configurations completed.

Summer 2011 Summer Session Office Once compensation is reconciled with the College, Summer Session office submits a pay EPAF electronically and the information is loaded into Banner for payment. Payment is made according to pay calendar distributed from the Office of the Provost. Terms lasting 4.5 weeks or longer will have multiple pay periods. (See APR 19 for pay schedules per term.) Payments are made at the end of the month Payments are made at the end of the month NOTE: After drop add date, if there is no payment for a class, the PAF is voided for that class and faculty access is removed as appropriate
Key Points Accuracy in every blank is essential! Contract piece no longer needed for permanent faculty on active contract All SS PAF’s go to SS office – due by March 25 th DL and resident taught in summer session all processed on one SS PAF for each instructor Funding for DL teaching is responsibility of the College (no longer Ed Outreach) Cross listed Distance courses must be indicated as such on PAF – these are paid by Dept DL funding (not Summer Session)
Key Points Information on your PAF MUST match the information in Banner for pay calculations to be correct! Degree earned affects AMOUNT of pay Type of employee (FT, PT, Retired) affects AMOUNT of pay Session dates MUST be accurate because dates directly affect WHEN the person is paid! Course classification (must be approved by the Dean) affects AMOUNT of pay Pay attention to your position #’s and budget codes - contact budget office if have questions
Note Course classifications must be loaded into Banner with the course – Banner Contract Codes – THIS AFFECTS PAY CALCULATIONS PAF’s with missing or incorrect information will be put aside and will likely delay pay to the next pay cycle or later.
Distance Learning Budgets Position numbers for distance learning will probably be changing. All fund and position numbers will be sent to the dean’s assistants prior to March1st. Any questions, please contact the budget office or the Provost’s office.
