Purpose: To provide payment guidelines for internship and independent study instruction. Scope: Part-time instructors engaged with internships or independent study, and full-time faculty providing internships or independent study opportunities on an overload assignment. Attachment: Definitions:
Internships: provide students with an opportunity to work in a job that is directly related to their particular field of study, while bridging that important gap between classroom instruction and practical work experience.
Independent Study: An intensive study and/or research on a topic under the direction of a qualified faculty member.
The following compensation schedule will apply to those employees overseeing internship students and independent study students:
The pay will be calculated at five non-teaching hours at the established non-teaching rate (1/2 the current teaching rate) for each student enrolled in an internship or independent study.
For part-time instructors subject to limits on hours and credits taught and worked per semester, this assignment will be considered non-teaching.
Payment will be awarded when a grade is issued to the student. It is the responsibility of the employee to request compensation.
Full-time faculty overseeing internship students or independent study students will be compensated in accordance with this procedure, unless it is part of their regular workload.
