Part-Time Faculty benefits eligibility is based on instructional full time equivalency (FTE). Each year during summer term, the College looks back at the previous academic year to determine eligibility. The total instructional FTE for the academic year (four terms) must be at least 1.5 FTE. Schedules and loads may vary from one term to another, but Part-Time Faculty members who meet eligibility requirements will be eligible for benefits the following academic year, provided they are scheduled to teach. The benefit year runs from October 1st through September 30th.
If you are eligible for Part-Time Faculty benefits, you will receive an Open Enrollment mailing in early August. You must complete online enrollment in MyOEBB. If you are unsure of your FTE, please check with your department.
If you enroll in benefits as a Part-Time Faculty member, the employee portion of your premiums will be deducted from your bi-weekly paychecks before taxes. Some pay periods you may not get paid, because of a break between terms or not working an entire term. See Part-Time Faculty Payment Instructions for an explanation of what you need to do to keep your insurance if you are in unpaid status.
