An assigned teaching load in excess of 12 credit hours per semester are to be approved no later than at the time of registration by the Department Chairperson and College/School Dean. Faculty who elect non-assigned teaching responsibilities to serve students by teaching in excess of 12 credit hours per semester and 24 credit hours per year will not be compensated for overload teaching as a result of such a voluntary choice.
