Faculty Salary Exchange Program and Course Buy-out Program

Faculty Salary Exchange Program (FSEP)

Faculty may pay a portion of their academic year salary on extramural funds, and retain 100% of their released salary. The resulting salary savings are retained by the department and distributed according to departmental policy.

Compensation effort from extramural sources should not exceed 50% time in an academic year.

Funds allocated to the participant must be used by the faculty member for research and administrative expenditures allowable on state funds.

Participation in the program should in no way reduce the teaching and service commitment of the faculty member.

Requests must be received by the Dean's Office at least 30 days prior to the effective date of the FSEP. Effective date is always the first day of the month.

FSEP form  (contact Jen if you want the Excel version)

Faculty Course Buy-out Program (CBO)

Faculty may use extramural dollars to buy out 2 courses per year, at the rate of 1/3 of the participant's annual salary, or 1/6 (16.67%) per course.

The department will receive 100% of the released salary, of which a portion must be used to replace the participant's uncovered courses.

Participants must teach two courses during the year, at least one of which must be an undergraduate course (size and content to be determined by departmental needs).

Participants in the program should in no way reduce the service commitment of the faculty member. The faculty member must remain on campus for the duration of the buy-out, with the exception of standard leaves of absence within policy.  Any exceptions require EVC approval.

This program may not be used in combination with a sabbatical leave.
