The Affordable Care Act requires that employers establish reasonable standards for determining the number of hours of service by adjunct faculty, including other hours that are necessary to perform the adjunct faculty member's duties, such as class preparation time.
1. Adjunct faculty will be considered to spend two and one-half (2
1/2) hours of service (preparation, grading, etc.) for every one (1)
credit hour taught. The total hours shall be entered when processing the
Electronic Personnel Action Form (ePAF).
This policy shall be included in the WSU Policies and Procedures Manual and shared with appropriate constituencies of the University.
Academic Affairs shall have primary responsibility for publication, dissemination and implementation of this University policy.
