Seeking Approval for Honoraria
Individuals may seek prior approval from the University for the receipt of honoraria or they may report the honorarium at the end of the reporting year when such information is requested from the Human Resource Department. The reporting year is April 1 – March 31.
Receipt of honoraria may be requested from the President in advance of the receipt of the gratuity. The normal reporting mechanism is to report the honoraria when the information is requested from the Human Resource Office in the spring of each year.
