For Part-time Faculty         

When will I get paid?

I will be running reports on completed hours weekly.   As soon as you hit your 3 hours, I will generate a timesheet and send you a confirmation email.  If you decide you want to claim less than 3 hours, send an email to [email protected].  Anyone who has less than 3 hours on 5/15 will automatically get paid for that number of hours.

For Presenters

My workshop details have changed, should I change that myself?

              No!  Just send an email to [email protected] and I will fix it right up.

How do I claim my prep time for my presentation?

              You were listed on the roster so you already received credit for attending.  Additionally, you are entitled to 3x time for a first-time presentation and 2x time for repeat presentation.  You will need to submit External Training for the additional time.

Example:  You did a 2 hours presentation for the first time.  You are entitled to 3×2=6 hours total.  You have already been given 2 hours credit for attending so you will need to submit External Training for the extra 4 hours.

For part-time faculty, see below.  For full-time faculty, most people will need 24 hours of FLEX time because they teach 30 units * 80% = 24 hours.  However, if you teach release time, short-term classes, were on sabbatical or otherwise taught a reduced load, the calculations will be different.  Please email me at [email protected] so I can record your situation.

Maybe. Right now, I have pushed attendance from Convocation and Academic Senate/Curriculum Committee on  to your transcript.   You will be able to see this on your Complete Transcript.  All others you should enter in manually.  If you are unsure, send an email to [email protected].   This list will likely get extended to other campus wide committees and workshops in the 2021-2022 school year.  

No worries!  Just send an email to [email protected] and I will fix it right up.

FLEX Peer Review Committee 

The purpose of the FLEX Peer Review Committee is to determine whether an activity meets the FLEX guidelines designated by Title 5, the Chancellors Office and the Academic Senate of Merced College.  The Committee meets on the first Friday of the month.  One of the goals of the committee is to serve as an available resource to assist faculty in completing their individual FLEX/Staff Development obligation.  Additional information may be found in the portal under Senate Bylaws and Board Policy.
