             Hourly rate x (total contract hours + total preparation hours)

             Preparation Hours: two hours of preparation time for each contract hour taught.

             Example:  A faculty member who earns $12 per hour (contract rate) would be paid the following for a
             three-credit hour course:

                 $12 x (45 contract hours + 90 preparation hours)

                 $12 x (135 hours) = $1,620.00

         Scheduling for summer school must consider preparation hours as well as contract hours when determining
         total class length.
