What should I do if I do not have a social security card or number?

For your protection, a lost or stolen Social Security card should be reported to the Social Security Administration office. Human Resources will contact the Social Security Administration to verify that you have a social security number. With this information and completion of Human Resources/Payroll forms, Human Resources will process you on payroll. Once you receive your new card, you must bring it to Human Resources so that we can make a copy for your file.

Note: If you are an international faculty with no social security number, you must apply for a social security number. Without a social security number Human Resources will not be able to process you on payroll. A new Social Security number will take 2 to 3 weeks to receive. As soon as you receive your new card present it to the Human Resources office so that we can make a copy and process you on payroll.

For more information, please visit the Social Security Administration Web Site at: http://www.ssa.gov/forms/comment-form.html

How is my semi-monthly gross salary calculated?

Each Adjunct faculty member's pay rate is calculated by the following formula:

Semi-monthly Pay Rate = (Credit Hour Rate * # of credits) / (# of Pay Periods)

Example: Professor Stewart earns $700.00 per credit. She is receiving 3 credits for a class that is being taught in the fall semester.

Her salary would be as follows:

  • $700.00 per credit multiplied by 3 credits divided by 7 pay periods = $300.00 (gross amount she will receive per pay period)

What are Pace University's Compensation Guidelines for Adjunct Faculty members teaching in two schools during the same semester?

Faculty Representatives’ who have an Adjunct Faculty member that will be teaching in two schools during the same semester, should fully coordinate this effort with the other identified school’s Faculty Representative and the HR/HRIS Department to ensure that the two separate rates, if different, are addressed in an appropriate and timely manner.

This effort can and will be achieved in Banner via the HRIS Department’s automated and manual processes.

Each Faculty Representative is required:

  • To communicate the above mentioned actions in a timely manner to ensure that the Adjunct Faculty member is paid correctly and on time, as outlined in their appointment letter.
  • To be well-informed and educated in performing their jobs, as it relates to this effort.

"The people of Pace are the institution’s most valuable resource. The University is committed to being a leading comprehensive institution in the greater New York area. Commitments to ongoing improvement and to the fostering of an environment of trust and respect will enable the University to be a viable, versatile institution in the 21 century."
