Section B: Contracts and Compensation

III-B-2 Salary Payments

Salary payments to faculty members and associates are customarily made in twelve installments, at the end of each calendar month. The disbursal of salary may be arranged over a shorter period, but in no case over a period shorter than nine months.

The University does not grant salary advances except in cases of grave family, personal or medical emergency. In such cases, the request for a salary advance must be made to the Provost.
