Course Credit Policy


This policy covers how courses are counted faculty teaching load calculations.


In keeping with Trinity College of Arts & Sciences’ strategic priority of maximizing classroom contact between students and regular rank faculty, we wish to confirm consistent metrics for counting courses towards a faculty member’s nominal teaching load. Our criteria are as follows:

Each course, regardless of enrollment size, may only be counted as one course towards a faculty member’s nominal load.

Effective in academic year 2010/11 faculty will no longer be allowed to double count large enrollment courses. Double counting for large lecture courses remains as a component of the accelerated sabbatical policy criteria.
