Provost's Policy
Regarding Summer Teaching Workload

[Policy articulated in March 2006 after consultation with Associate Deans]




In recognition of the compressed schedules for summer and J session courses at Columbia College Chicago, the following policy for teaching load during these sessions will apply, to help insure academic integrity:

  1. No part-time or full-time teacher should teach more than two courses concurrently during regular Columbia College summer sessions. The credit hour total for these courses may not exceed eight credit hours.
  2. No part-time or full-time teacher should teach more than one course during the Columbia College J-session.
  3. This policy includes any concurrent Columbia College courses, including High School Summer Institute courses and Directed Studies.
  4. This policy excludes Independent Projects.
  5. Exceptions to this policy must be requested in writing, and approved by the Provost.
