10-Month Facutly Hired 2nd Semester
The academic year is divided into two semesters: Fall and Spring. Fall is the 1st semester, pay period dates running 8/25 – 12/24. Spring is the 2nd semester, pay period dates running 12/25 – 4/24. If you are beginning your employment in the 2nd semester, we will need to prorate your salary to carry you through the summer months of 4/25-8/24. The following is a list of steps we use to calculate your prorated salary:
- Divide your annual salary in half since you are only working half of the academic year. For example, if your salary is $65,000, you will use $32,500.
- Next, using the annual salary calculated in step 1, divide that number by 16 which is the total number of pay periods from 12/25 – 08/24 (Spring and Summer). This will give you your adjusted semi-monthly rate. Example: $32,500/16 = $2,031.25.
- Take the adjusted semi-monthly rate and multiply it by 24 to get the adjusted salary that will be keyed into the system. Example: $2,031.25 x 24 = $48,750. This will be the annual salary shown in the payroll system through 8/24.
- Then effective 8/25, Payroll will bring your salary back to the full 10 month amount, which in this example would be $65,000. The $65,000 would then be paid out 8/25 – 8/24 of the following year in 24 equal installments. For this example your semi-monthly gross pay would become $2,708.33 ($65,000 divided by 24).
