Summer School

[Faculty Handbook Category #2]

St. Olaf College offers a summer school comprising two 5 ½ week (28 day) sessions.  Faculty/student contact hours for a summer term approximate faculty/student contact hours per course (37–40) during the regular semester.  Faculty have the opportunity to teach summer school courses at a salary based on the number of students in the course, with a set minimum number required for full salary.  Some faculty supervise IS/IR courses and/or Internships during the summer; they are paid a set fee for supervising each IS/IR or Internship.  There is a maximum allowable salary faculty may earn teaching summer school courses.  If more members of a department or program wish to teach in summer school than are needed, department chairs and program directors determine which of their members will teach.  The Registrar’s Office administers summer school.
