Guidelines for Processing an Extra Compensation Request
The following guidelines will help you process a request for extra compensation when deemed appropriate according to the University of Missouri System's Collected Rule 360.010 Extra Compensation and HR Policy 214.
If the request totals $1,000 or more the department will need to complete a Recommendation for Extra Compensation form.
Academic Summer Session Appointments:
Academic summer session appointments DO NOT require the request for extra compensation form to be completed for any amount.
The department should complete the additional pay form and send it to the department chair and dean for signatures, and then to human resources for entry. Include information about the appointment in the comments section and attach supporting documentation/information as necessary.
Extra Compensation Appointments Less Than $1,000:
For Extra Compensation appointments that amount to less than $1,000, the request for extra compensation form is NOT required. The department should complete the additional pay form and send it to the department chair/director and dean/vice chancellor, and then to human resources for approval and entry.
