Hiring for Special Sessions Courses

Special Sessions is a unit within the Exams and Timetabling Department in the Office of the Registrar. It serves students and the University by administering "special" course offerings in the Spring and Summer terms, and evening classes during the Fall and Winter terms.

Effective May 1, 2016, the funding reimbursement and the hiring processes for Special Sessions courses were separated. Employee pay for courses designated as Special Sessions must be in accordance with the applicable collective agreements. Departments must submit hires for courses funded through Special Sessions in the same way they would for non-Special Sessions courses. See below for general guidelines:
