Faculty Load Form Instructions
The Faculty Load Form is an important tool in maintaining accurate data and is used for various purposes such as determining appropriate budget allocations, for ensuring that course releases are covered by part-time faculty, to assist with yearly reports submitted to the Institutional Research and Planning office, among others.
The load form should be fully completed. All activities that could potentially count towards load should be included on the form, whether the activities are performed outside of the university setting, as overload, or for release time. This will allow for the Dean's office to determine if an overload payment should be processed for faculty members or if funding needs to be transferred from one budget to another.
Following are specific instructions for each section:

Semester: Insert the semester for which the form is being completed.

Supervision: List the names of ALL the students you will be supervising (whether it be for practicum, fieldwork or student teaching) and the proportional number of units per student based on the Practicum & Fieldwork Compensation section of the Faculty and Personnel Handbook
Additional Units: ANY additional units must have been approved by your program director/department chair and by the Dean, and must be substantiated with written backup attached to this form.
