General Information on Compensation for Academics

There are limitations on allowable compensation paid through the university, and on the number of days engaged in outside professional activities for academic appointees.  Allowable payments and eligibility for additional compensation are restricted by title series and job responsibilities. Section IV. Salary Administration of the Academic Personnel Manual contains the policies on allowable compensation paid through the university for those in academic titles.  APM 025 and UCD 025 outline types of activities that are allowable as ‘outside professional activities’, that is, allowable activities that might be paid outside the university.  Some pre-approval for certain activities is required. For those in the Health Sciences Compensation Plan (HSCP), see APM 670 and the UCD School of Medicine Compensation Plan. For retirees on recall, please see our Retirements and Recalls page.

For comprehensive information, please refer to the applicable policy section in the Academic Personnel Manual listed below.
