The individual class formula is the actual annual salary divided by 30 WTUs (faculty expected workload for the year) to determine a WTU rate.

That number is multiplied by the value of WTUs assigned to a class based on the type of instructional activity to weight by the share of the annual FTE work represented by a given assignment.

It is calculated as:

([Compensation Rate] *12) * ([Instructional Weighted Teaching Units] / 30)
