Summer Effort Waiver Procedures

In accordance with the Provost's policy on voluntary recovery of academic year salary and its associated preclusion to summer effort exceeding 83.3% of summer period on federal or state sponsored projects, the Academic Year Faculty Summer Salary Waiver Request Form is used to document effort commitments and request the waiver.  Please follow the instructions on sheet 2 of the Excel spreadsheet to complete the form.  An example is shown on sheet 3.

Requests for waiver should be sent to the Provost's Office at provost@provost.umass.edu

Please note that waivers will be granted only under extenuating circumstances and with the required assurances by faculty that no non-sponsored project activities will take place during the period of compensation.
