Overview

When Full Time Faculty are teaching online classes with enrollments that exeed 25 students as part of their regular load, the overloaded students from the online class are paid above the instructor's regular salary.  The overloaded students also generate FTE% for that instructor and that overload FTE% is not typically* attributed as part of their regular load.  Because the instructor's regular load is calculated in FWL as non-pay generating (FTE Only), but the FT Online Overload does generate pay in FWL, there are two different calculation formulas.  The regular load portion is calculated using the FTE Only contract types (F01-F20) and the overloaded students pay is calculated under the FT Online Overload contract types (X01-X18). This will require you to enter the instructor twice in the Instructors for Meeting Pattern section on the Schedule of Class.  The online contract generated will be only for the overload portion of the FTE%.

At Community Colleges of Spokane instructor pay for online overload classes is based on the number of students enrolled above 25 students and below 36.  If more than 35 students want to enroll a new class section is supposed to be opened.  For questions on this please contact your district HR office.

The pay methology for FT Online Overload first takes into account what the class would be paid out as if the instructor would be paid as Moonlight pay, for example a 5 credit lecture in Workload Category A has an FTE% of 33.333% and moonlight pay of $3395.67 (1/3 of $10,187) - this is NOT what the instructor will be paid since their pay comes from their full time salary.  Once the dollar value of the class is determined, this amount is divided by 25 to determine the 'per student' amount.  Keep in mind, this value changes based on the dollar value of each class.  Using the example of pay above, 1/25th of $3395.67 results in $135.83 per student.  As an alternate example, a 2 credit class at Workload Category C would have a dollar value of $1018.70 and 1/25th of that class would result in $40.75 per student.

Next comes determining the overload count, for example, 27 students enrolled, subtract the first 25 to determine that 2 students are overloaded.  The overloaded student count is multiplied by the per student cost to calculate the total pay for overloaded students and the resulting value is the amount of pay the instructor is eligible for, for example $135.83 x 2 =$271.66 in total pay.

The Term Contact Hours of the contract are calculated by dividing the overloaded student count (2), by the threshold (25) to and then multiply by the Term Contact Hours of the class to determine the  hours value of the overloaded students. For example 2/25 = .08 x 55 = 4.4 hours for the 2 students.

The FTE% of the contract is calculated by dividing the Term Contact Hours (e.g. 4.4) by the total hours of the workload category (e.g. 165), or 4.4 /165 = 2.667% FTE.

Note: For Spokane the Assignment Type naming convention begins with 2 to 4 characters code that specify the division issuing the contract (noted by ‘DDDD’ in the example below) for FT Online Overload contracts the Assignment Type is followed by [FOL]. For FT Online Overload contracts that are multi-component (for example, Lecture/Lab) the Assignment Type is followed by [FOLL].

The FT Online Overload Assignment Types have a configuration of $10,187 or $11,170 in the Term Max Load Rate value, thus generating pay equivalent to Adjunct faculty, but only for the students enrolled over the maximum of 25, the regular load is paid from the instructor's full time salary.
