Summer School Compensation Policy

Policy #:

ACAD106

Authorized by:

Associate Dean for Academic Affairs date 10/15/13

Approved by:

Dean of the University date 10/18/13

The normal teaching load shall be 4-7 credit hours for compensation of 15%.

The campus should make every effort to honor the course and time (summer session) requests of faculty members. However, because no State appropriations currently provide for aid to summer school, it should be understood that in the event of insufficient enrollment in one or more courses, the following compensation plan shall be applied:

Any non-laboratory course (3 or more credit hours) shall pay a maximum of 7½% of the annual base salary, provided that tuition and fees generated by enrollment in the course yield sufficient revenue to pay this amount of the annual base salary. In the event of insufficient enrollment in the course to pay the maximum 7½%, then compensation shall be pro-rated based on the revenue generated by the number of students enrolled in the course (calculated using the current tuition and fee schedule).Classes with fewer than 5 students shall be cancelled.

Any science laboratory course (5-7 contact hours) shall pay a maximum of 15% of the annual base salary, provided that fees generated by enrollment in the course yield sufficient revenue to pay this amount of the annual base salary. In the event of insufficient enrollment in the course to pay the maximum of 15%, then compensation shall be pro-rated based on the revenue generated by the number of students enrolled in the course (calculated using the current tuition and fee schedule). Classes with fewer than 5 students shall be cancelled.

The administration reserves the right to waive the above compensation policy for necessary courses for continued service to students.

If a faculty member has already earned the maximum of 15% of his annual base salary for teaching in one summer session, the stipend for teaching an additional three credit hour course in a second summer session shall be the same stipend as that paid for three hours of overload during the regular academic year.
