UW-Platteville Summer Appointment Policy
Persons employed on an academic year basis shall be compensated for additional assignments during the summer session at the rate up to the equivalent of 2/9 of the previous academic year salary rate for a full work load for an eight week summer session. All summer payments, whether summer session and/or summer service, are counted in the 2/9 rule. If the institution determines that there are differences in summer session work load from a full time work load, then an appropriate compensation level shall be established. (Additional employment periods during the summer may be determined by the institution.) Compensation received in the summer period may not in aggregate exceed 2/9 of the academic year salary of the person appointed unless an explicit exception is granted by the Chancellor or designee, regardless of source of funds.
Summer payments are not subject to the $12,000 limitation imposed on a calendar year basis by SYS 165, Academic Year Definition And Assorted Derivatives, UPG-4 and Section 16.417(2), Wisconsin Statutes.
