The cost of hiring an adjunct professor, if any, will be directly charged or transferred to the appropriate sponsor account. The balance of available funds (excluding adjunct salary if applicable) will be moved to a reserve account for use by the principal investigator to support research endeavors.

Approval of release time and the allocation of release time funds to a reserve may be granted through the recommendation of the Sponsored Programs Director and the approval of the Chair and Dean of the appropriate School / College.
