  • Please ignore the status listed below the term, in this case “Full-Time”. It is a default and may not represent your real status. Also ignore the “Assignment FTE%”
  • Assign Type: These descriptions are tied to the type of workload being listed. In addition to lecture, you will see lab, collapsed, not included, etc.
  • Since classes are “rolled over” from previous terms a year in advance, teaching assignments and workload for those future terms are still being determined.
  • If you have any questions or concerns about your workload, please contact your Division Dean or Program Head.
