Academic Employment: Payroll Information
All academic staff members are compensated for services in 12 monthly installments or on a pro rata basis for shorter periods. Services over the academic year (August 16-May 15) are paid over 12 months (August 16-August 15). Certain exceptions allow for compensation for services in nine monthly installments for nine-month academic year service. The exceptions include graduate assistants, visiting faculty, faculty on terminal year contracts, and faculty who as employees of Sangamon State University were paid their nine-month academic year contract salaries in nine monthly installments (August 16-May 15) and who chose to continue that arrangement.
Paydays are scheduled for the 16th of each month. When the 16th day falls on a holiday or on a weekend, the payday occurs on the immediately preceding work day.
