Please note that the HR/Payroll department enters contract dates based on what the department provides, the contracts should be written based on the academic calendar and/or when the employees are actually working, we will use Payroll dates that are as close to that as possible.
*Please note that like prior year ADJFAC and TA/RA contracts will be paid for nine pay periods instead of eight and TA/RA contracts will be paid in 19 pay periods instead of 18 pay periods, which will reduce the biweekly pay but the full stipend will still be received at the end of the academic year. TA/RA/GA Payscale
**If the contracts are not received on time then payment will be delayed. Also this pay schedule may not apply to all Adjunct Faculty.
