  • There are no restrictions on who can teach a Winter Term course. If the course is overload, it will count towards faculty member's 20% maximum of allowed extra compensation for the fiscal year. The department will determine if the course is inload or overload.

  • All online instructors (faculty and adjuncts) will be paid according to their department adjunct rates.  

  • The deadline to cancel a course due to low enrollment is December 5, 2019. It is the department and instructor’s decision to cancel a course. There is no required minimum enrollment for online courses. A Schedule Correction form must be originated by the department to cancel the course and the instructor must inform the students that the course will not be offered.

  • Instructors should post their syllabus on Canvas or communicate instructions with your students no later than November 26. Students need to be able to order any textbooks and other required materials early. They also need to be aware of their required workload during the course.
