It is the policy of the university that providing life-long learning through continuing education is an important part of its mission.  In order to encourage faculty to participate in these activities, the faculty may earn extra compensation for teaching in continuing education programs in lieu of consulting.  The extra compensation will normally be paid at a rate of 0.00278 X 9-month salary per hour of instruction.  This rate is based on the assumption that 12 credits per semester, for two semesters, for 15 weeks is the normal load for an academic year.  [0.00278 ‘1/(12 x 2 x 15)] – maximum rate.  For purposes of E-Hire Forms, these hours must be kept separate from for-credit hours.
