Faculty Summer Pay for Instruction
Beginning June 2017
There are 3 different summer academic programs that a faculty member can be teaching this summer. A faculty member can teach in any or all 3 programs for a maximum of 9 credit hours. General guidelines for all 3 programs:
- Maximum 9 credit hours total for summer
- No more than 6 credit hours in 4 week sessions
- No overloads.
- Up to a maximum of $4,000 for different courses, not multiple sections of same course
- Summer school session is different from special summer initiatives. So a faculty person teaching a course for summer school can be paid for the same course taught for a special initiative – JumpStart, Freshman Academy, etc.
- Maximum a faculty member could make during the summer (combination of 4 week, 8 week sessions) = $12,000.
- Separate PTRs are necessary for June and July
- Each program requires a different PTR
- This has the possibility of a faculty member needing up to 6 separate PTRs for summer if he/she teaches in all three programs for both months
These programs are listed below with an explanation of summer pay calculation:
- Regular Summer School –fund account number should be 1-302-61599-61207-11.
Indicate in comment section of PTR: class, course credit/contact hours, course term (i.e. SU, SU1, ) # of students and rate calculation.
- Undergraduate Level for Existing LU Faculty
Both lower and upper division
1) Minimum 15 students or more enrolled in class
$ 4,000 pay rate per course = 3 credit hour course
$ 2,667 pay rate per course = 2 credit hour course
$1,333 per rate per course = 1 credit hour course
2) 5-14 students enrolled in class
# students divided by 15 X (pay rate per course)
= total pay
Example 1- 10 students in a 3 credit hour course:
10/15=.667, .667 x 4,000=$ 2,668, Example 2- 6 students in a 2 credit hour course:
6/15=.400, .400 x 2,667=$ 1,066.80
3) 4 students or less enrolled in class
Uncompensated conference courses considered
4) Adjunct Rate for Non-LU Faculty and must have 5 or more student enrollments
- Graduate Level
Maximum 9 credit hours total for summer
No more than 6 credit hours in 4 week sessions
1). Minimum 5 students or more
a). 8 week session: June and July
Base salary divided by 10 * (credit hour %) for each credit hour class * 2 months
1 credit hour = .111, 2 credit hours = .222, 3 credit hours = .333, 6 credit hours = .667, credit hours = 1.00
Example: if a faculty member had a base salary of $50,000 and was teaching 6 credit hours, the salary would be calculated by $50,000/10 = $5000; $5000*.667=$3335 for June and $3335 for July or $6670 for the summer.
b). 4 week session- 1 month session for 3 credit hours
1 credit hour = .222, 2 credit hours = .333, 3 credit hours = .667, 6 credit hours = 1.334
Example: if a faculty member above taught 6 credit hours in a 4 week session, she or he would receive $6670 for the month in which the courses were taught.
