Adjuncts: How many credits can an adjunct instructor teach?

Adjunct instructors that are represented by the UNAD union (FT) cannot teach more than 15 credits per year.

  • Summer semester doesn't count toward credit count
  • FW assignments don't count toward credit count

If you have a situation where an adjunct instructor is teaching more than 15 credits in an academic year, then they must be moved into a benefited, F9 position and be represented by UNAC.
