New part-time faculty may enroll, if eligible, during the first 30 days of the semester or at Open Enrollment. Part-time faculty can qualify in one of two ways:
- Have a teaching assignment equal or greater than forty percent (40%) for the semester.
- Maintain an average forty percent (40%) or greater teaching assignment over the previous two consecutive semesters.
