    This program field filters the list of courses and sorts current faculty alphabetically with TBA (To Be Announced) at the top. All current faculty are available through search.
  2. Select a faculty member.
    Annual Load Target is determined in collaboration with deans, associate provost and program directors. Target Loads are entered in J1 by deans and associate provost offices.
  3. Add a section
    1. Select a Term
    2. Select a Course
    3. Add Section (A-K for Harrisonburg, L-S for Lancaster)
    4. Adjust Load hours as need (default = course SH)
    5. Assign Compensation Type (default = LD Faculty Load)
    6. Enter relevant Notes
    7. Verify and/or change course section program (Which program is paying wages?)
    8. Click the Add Section button to save.
  4. (Optional) Remove a section

    4. Faculty loading may be 'locked for edit' for a given faculty if someone else is entering load/section for the given faculty. The 'lock for edit" limit will clear after four hours of inactivity.
    5. If you think a faculty member is missing from the list, contact your dean's office.
