Workload for Supervision Courses (S-Factor)

The practice for managing workload for supervision courses was established as the result of a settlement between CFA and Cal State LA in July 2015.

1) Faculty will not receive workload credit for teaching supervision courses unless the Dean of their respective college provides prior explicit approval of the assignment to teach as part of their WTU workload.

  • Approval must be obtained prior to the date determined by each college.

2) Faculty who teach an approved overage may accumulate units during a period of three consecutive semesters (summer excluded), to be used for assigned time in that same period or in the following year.

  • Banking updates will occur following the official census date each semester.
  • Banking statements will be distributed to all faculty with banked WTU by the beginning of the ninth full week of classes each semester.

For WTU not included as part of the total workload in the current semester, banked WTU may be “spent” in either of the two semesters following the third of three consecutive semesters (or sooner if enough WTU are accumulated). The period for banking will move forward each semester. For example, WTU banked in semesters A, B, and C, will be available during semesters A, B, or C, and if not exhausted, MUST be used in semesters D or E, or the WTU will expire.
