Please submit class offerings according to the Registrar's Office timeline and continue to use CourseLeaf CLSS. The process of approval is as follows:

  • Faculty submits course

Before issuing approval, the NTC Summer School staff will take the following into consideration:

  • Past enrollment numbers

Instructional contracts for summer teaching are not guaranteed and they are contingent upon a course enrollment minimum of 8 officially enrolled students. A course must have a minimum of 8 students for the instructor to receive their full summer salary. The student minimum will be enforced on a course-by-course basis and not calculated on a departmental average.

Graders and Lab Assistants are not to be listed on the Course Proposal Form, and only classes with 20 or more students enrolled will be eligible to have graders.
