Overload Teaching Extra Compensation
On occasion, members of the faculty may be paid to teach extra classes on an overload basis. The Board of Regents has approved extra compensation for such activity, as well as for participating in programs that are not considered part of normal duties, when all of the following conditions exist:
- The work is carried in addition to a normal full load.
- No qualified person is available to perform the work as part of a normal load.
- The work produces sufficient income to be self-supporting.
- The additional duties must not be so heavy as to interfere with the performance of regular duties.
- The additional duties and remuneration have received prior approval from the Board of Regents.
The Board also specifies that faculty are not eligible for extra compensation if they are on reduced teaching load for research or special assignment, if they are in writing stages for an advanced degree, or if such overload is not approved by the department head or dean. A reduced teaching load in order to perform other university duties, such as directing a program or serving part-time in another capacity, is not considered released time.
