LUO Load Hours

Standard base pay for typical 3-credit-hour online courses for both Online Contracted faculty and Online Adjunct faculty is based on contract/load hours, as shown below:

  • Undergraduate LUO courses (100-499) – 3 contract/load hours
  • Graduate LUO courses (500-699) – 4 contract/load hours
  • Doctorate LUO courses (700-980) – 5 contract/load hours

The standard matrix for credit: load determination is

  • Undergrad LUO – 1:1; capped at 3 contract/load hours
    • For example a 3 credit hour course = 3 load hours
  • Graduate LUO – 1:1+1; capped at 4 contract/load hours
    • For example, a 3 credit hour course = 4 load hours
  • Doctoral LUO – 1:1+2; capped at 5 contract/load hours
    • For example, a 3 credit hour course = 5 load hours

See the LUO Enrollment Policy for under-enrollment and over-enrollment considerations. Some LUO courses are not handled by the LUO Faculty Load and Compensation team. For questions regarding those courses, please refer to the Excluded from LUO Pay page.
