2019-20 Academic Salary Program

In accordance with guidelines issued by the Office of the President, the University of California is implementing the following salary increases. The current salary in PPS will be used to apply the respective salary increase.

Deans and full-time faculty administrators will be eligible for a 3% increase on their administrative salary effective July 1, 2019.

Ladder rank faculty and other academic appointees tied to the ladder rank scales
The effective date of the increase will be October 1, 2019. Due to this later implementation date, salaries will be adjusted to provide a 4% total increase for the year over nine months.

The range adjustment effective October 1, 2019 will be processed centrally. Below is an example of a faculty member with a current salary of $100,000 who receives the 4% increase in the amount of $4,000, which will be paid over 9 months. The annual salary will need to be rounded to the nearest hundredth.

Effective DatesAnnual SalaryMonthly Rate 
7/1/19 – 9/30/19 $100,000$8,333.33Current Salary
10/1/19 – $105,300*$8,775.004% Total Annual Increase effective October 1, 2019

* Calculation steps:
Step 1 – Calculate the 4% of the 7/1/2019 salary: $100,000 x .04 = $4,000
Step 2 – Divide the increase over 9 months: $4,000/9 = $444.44
Step 3 – Add the monthly increase to the 7/1/2019 monthly rate: $8,333.33 + $444.44 = $8,777.78
Step 4 – Annualize the rate: $8,777.78 x 12 = $105,333.36
Step 5 – Round the annual salary to the nearest $100 for new annual rate: $105,300
Step 6 – Calculate the new 10/1/2019 monthly rate: $105,300/12 = $8,775.00

Negotiated Salary Trial Program (NSTP)
The range adjustment, processed centrally, will not update any NSTP appointment or distribution lines. Effective October 1, 2019, NSTP participants must decrease the Negotiated Salary Component (NSC), while increasing the Scale Based Salary (SBS) to maintain the same Total UC Salary (TUCS) that was approved prior to the range adjustment, below is an example.
