Workload Definitions

Course Workload: The course contact hour in addition to the course office hour, equals the course workload (contact hour + office hour = workload).

Offset: Courses that are not paid, but are used to reduce a course assignment a faculty member is required to teach in a future semester within the academic calendar year.

Overload: Course being taught above a full-time faculty member’s normal course load. Overloads are paid at an hourly rate defined in the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).

  • Overload assignments for full-time faculty are governed by the Full-time Faculty Agreement.
  • Effective with Fall Semester 2018, overload pay will be calculated based on each credit hour the class is scheduled for.
  • The value per credit hour varies depending on the method of instruction.
  • Office hours will still be required, if applicable.
  • No leave is accrued for working an overload but accrued 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 accordingly.
  • Each credit hour is viewed as a ‘complete package’.
  • All course design is expected to be included in the ‘complete package’.
  • The college cannot pay for additional hours that faculty use for grading.
