Pay & Benefits

  • Overload pay is based on workload times the applicable rate.
  • The definition of workload is weekly contact hours plus office hours times the number of weeks for the course.
  • The workload column is listed on the Faculty Load and Compensation Acknowledgement screen in MyCNM.
  • Overload course compensation is calculated as follows:
    • For bachelors and master’s degree prepared instructors, overloads shall be paid at $32.00 per hour for each hour of the course, including the required scheduled office hours, if the course has one. For doctorate prepared instructors, overloads shall be paid at $33.00 per hour. Starting with Fall semester of 2015, overloads for all instructors shall be $32.00 an hour. The hourly overload rate shall be the only rate used to compute compensation for overloads.
  • No leave is earned for working an overload but earned leave can be used while working overloads.
  • When a full time faculty member is absent from a scheduled class assignment and leave has not been approved, pay will be docked for each hour missed at the same hourly rate at which the instructor is paid.
