Dept prints out PAF and sends through
signature process to Department Head and
Dean
 If not on currently active faculty contract, the
Dean’s office sends PAF/Contract to Faculty
member for signature on the contract
 When Dean receives back PAF and signed
contract - sends it to Summer Session office

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
• background screening requirement
• credentialing


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.


College will know compensation amounts 1 week prior to payroll deadline.
QUICK TURN AROUND – College will confirm amounts within 48 hours

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
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
