  • LS = Sequence number for course section segments (+10 indicates team taught)
  • CS = Course classification number based on mode of instruction (e.g., 02 = Lec; 16 = Lab)
  • A-CCU = Adjusted course credit units (unit value of course)
  • DAYS = Meeting Days for course. To-be-arranged hours will show as TBA
  • BEG = Class Begin time
  • END = Class End time
  • TBA = TBA Hours
  • FACL = Facility building number
  • SPACE = Room number

Department Totals

Sample FAD Department Totals report - contents described below

  • NO. OF APPTS = Number of faculty members
  • APPT FTEF = (Full-Time Equivalent Faculty) The sum of all Instructional Faculty Fraction for the department/college (IAF and OSF are not counted in FTEF; only IFF contributes to FTEF)

  • DIRECT WTU = The WTU earned from all class sections taught, as well as WTU earned from assigned time codes of 11, 15, 16, 17, and 18
  • INDIRECT WTU = The sum of all departmental assignments associated with assigned time codes other than 11, 15, 16, 17, and 18
  • TOTAL WTU = The sum of Direct and Indirect WTU
  • DIRECT WTU/FTEF = Direct WTU divided by APPT FTEF
  • TOTAL WTU/FTEF = Total WTU divided by APPT FTEF
  • TOTAL SCU = The sum of all class SCU (This is not an accurate account of the SCU earned for the department/college) 
  • TOTAL FTES = Total SCU divided by 15 for Undergrads

                          = Total SCU divided by 12 for Graduate students

  • SCU/FTEF = SCU divided by APPT FTEF
  • SFR = (Student:Faculty Ratio) Total FTES divided by APPT FTEF

Explanation of Range Codes

Explanation of WTU Calculation

type of course “K” factor   units   wtu
Lecture, C1-C6 1.0 x 3.0 = 3.0
Activity, C7-C14 1.3 x 2.0 = 2.6
Laboratory, C15 1.5 x 1.0 = 1.5
Laboratory, C16 2.0 x 1.0 = 2.0
Coaching Major Sport, C18 6.0 x 2.0 = 12.0
Coaching Minor Sport, C19 3.0 x 2.0 = 6.0
Major Performance Activity, C20-C21 3.0 x 2.0 = 6.0

Supervisory Workload

1.  Student Teaching & Thesis, S25 - 25 students = 12.0 WTU (0.48 WTU per student enrolled)
2.  Undergraduate Field Work, S36 - 36 students = 12.0 WTU (0.33 WTU per student enrolled)
