Adjunct Faculty Assignment Information

Assignment Variables
Instructional Assignment Forms for part-time instructional personnel may provide for employment by the day, by the semester hour or by the clock hour.

While the College values the dedication and commitment of adjunct faculty, there is no guarantee that when an adjunct is hired and assigned to teach a specific class that the class will actually be held. Low enrollment, program eliminations, etc. may affect whether a class will be canceled.

The decision to cancel is usually made within 24 hours of the closing of general registration. At that time, adjunct faculty affected by cancelations will be notified by a phone call from the division office.

When a class does have sufficient enrollment, the employment terms between the College and the adjunct faculty member are for a single semester only and do not imply automatic renewal for future semesters.

Eighty Percent Rule

  • Part-time faculty shall not be assigned more than 80% of a full teaching load
  • Exceptions requested by the Discipline Dean or the Collegewide Academic Discipline Chair may be authorized by the Office of Human Resources for emergencies on a term-by-term or case-by-case basis

Dual-Employment Rule

  • Non-exempt employees may not be employed in different categories simultaneously (example: part-time faculty may not also work as an hourly employee)
