No.  Beginning with Winter Quarter 2018 and ongoing, Payroll will no longer process early settlements in order to avoid gaps in pay as we start to transition to the semester pay schedule.  Also, by maintaining the normal pay check schedule, we will also avoid potential gaps in coverage for single term faculty who have medical insurance through the University as part of the Affordable Care Act.

Each term, the paychecks will be split (four fo reach quarter, six for each semester) and paid in consecutive month order for these individual term appointments.  Once we convert to the semester schedule, if a single term appointee receives an additional term appointment in th esame academic year, th epay will follow the applicable pattern referenced above for academic year appointees.
