Teaching Overload Requests

Process

If there are not enough faculty to cover courses offered during the semester, there may be opportunities for full time faculty to teach the courses above their regular workload (teaching overload) and additional compensation will be provided. Your degree or program director will notify the faculty of teaching overload course opportunities each semester. The faculty’s degree or program director will submit the request if a faculty member would like to teach one of these courses as overload.

Teaching overload requests are submitted for faculty in their program. Once requests are received, they are reviewed by Academic Success, finance and the dean considering enrollment and student degree requirements. If approved, the faculty teaching the overload will receive a copy of the request form to sign. Salary payments are  paid over the same pay period dates corresponding to when the teaching assignment occurs (i.e., over session A/B/C). 

Degree or program directors should submit requests for teaching overloads through the DocuSign PowerForm.
