Frequently Asked Questions  

If a faculty member is teaching a summer course on load do they receive additional compensation?  No, additional compensation will not be paid if the course is defined the offer letter as on load. 

How do you define a course for compensation purposes? Three, four, and five semester hour courses will be compensated the same.  Proration occurs when courses are low enrolled or have semester credit hours of one or two hours. 

How are low enrolled courses defined? Low enrolled courses are defined as courses who have less than 16 students and will be prorated as such.  Exceptions apply if the course has restrictions that only allow a maximum of less than 16 students.  Please contact your Associate Dean if this exception applies to your situation.
