  2. Appendix D: Workload Equivalencies

    Workload Equivalents Guidelines

    The information in the table below represents the minimum workload equivalents recommended with a variety of course types and course delivery methods. The terms “Assistants” and “Assistance” in the table refer to Graduate Assistants, Teaching Assistants, or Student Employees. 

    Normally, workload equivalents should be allocated according to the information provided in table below. In the event that the delivery method and/or course work for a course are unusual, a faculty member may request an adjustment of the workload equivalents that are provided in the table below.

    The assignment of workload equivalents is the responsibility of the Dean, in consultation with the Coordinators/Directors of Academic Program Areas and the CAC. Approval of the Dean is required for the assignment of all workload equivalents.
