Policy Statement

There may be occasions when emergency circumstances, defined as unforeseen, unplanned and unavoidable events, demand immediate attention and require an employee to secure funds on short notice. If this occurs, the university is willing to assist the employee by providing a salary advance against days worked in the current pay period. 

The amount of an emergency salary advance will be limited to 70 percent of the gross pay earned in the period and no more than the normal net pay for any pay period. The minimum request is $50. Only one advance per 12 month period will be authorized per employee. Advances will be authorized by the employee's supervisor and the Information Management/Records Office of the Human Resources Department.
