Research Policies

Course Buyout Policy:

The Harris College Administrative Council comprised of the Dean, the chairs of the departments, and the assistant and associate deans approved a course buyout policy to address a faculty course buyout requested by a faculty member and approved by the department chair. The faculty member will have to pay 12.5% of his/her salary for each requested course buyout. This usually happens as a result of a funded grant outlining the approved buyout. This policy can be found in the Harris College Handbook located on the “hhs_common drive”. Please review this policy before arranging for a course buyout release.
