Full-time Employment For Higher Education Faculty

Concerning the calculation of full-time employment for teachers at higher education institutions for purposes of the federal public loan forgiveness program.
2023 Regular Session
Higher Education
Bill Summary

To determine if a faculty or teacher at a state or nonprofit institution of higher education (institution) is a full-time employee under the federal public loan forgiveness program (program), the bill requires the faculty's or teacher's credit or contact hours to be multiplied by at least 4.35 to determine the number of hours worked. The bill allows an institution to apply this calculation going back to October 1, 2007. Also, the bill directs institutions to either directly certify employment for the program or annually provide employees with partially completed forms to certify their employment.
