Academic Review Process
Leaves and Sabbaticals
For UC Paid Administrative Leave (PAL), the UCI-AP-76, Leave of Absence form will need to be approved by the Dean and submitted to the Office of Academic Personnel for record keeping.
For Emergency Paid Sick Leave (EPSL) and/or Expanded Family Medical Leave (EFML), the UCI-AP-76, Leave of Absence form along with the University of California Employee Request for Emergency Paid Sick Leave (EPSL) and/or Expanded Family and Medical Leave will need to be submitted to the Office of Academic Personnel and approved by the Vice Provost for Academic Personnel.
For GSRs and TAs, the Office of Academic Personnel created a google sheet for each school to track administrative paid leave since they do not use TRS to report time. These were emailed directly to the Chief Personnel Officers (CPOs).
Please note: Individuals who are able to perform their duties remotely are not required to report leave.
Due to this allowance, faculty will be allowed to accrue above the max if they have any sabbatical cancellations due to the COVID-19 crisis. Individuals will need to submit a memo to accrue beyond the maximum credit via the chair, dean and forwarded to the assigned Academic Personnel analyst for Vice Provost acknowledgement.
Individuals wanting to accrue above the max with requests NOT due to the Spring sabbatical cancellation must go through the normal process.
