Banner Faculty Load & Compensation (FLAC)

Banner FLAC bridges the gap between Banner modules (HR / Finance / Student / Payroll) to deliver a comprehensive path to assigning and compensating (as applicable) faculty* workload, with an emphasis on assignments outside of base workload.

FLAC replaces two custom-built UNCW applications, "HR Online" and "Supplemental Compensation Request System”, which are scheduled to be decommissioned due to a lack of technical support.

FLAC allows the user to match permanent or temporary faculty* with courses already created in Banner by the Registrar (from the Student module), for assignment or overload teaching. Non-instructional assignments, whether paid or not, can also be easily captured in FLAC, which will allow a more comprehensive view to workload assignments. Any of these actions, however, can be individually customized as circumstances may require.

An added benefit is that the individual employee now will have easy-to-use, self-directed access (through SeaNet/Banner self-service) to acknowledge assignments as they occur, as well as view their overall record for actions that have been entered through FLAC.

FLAC will automatically calculate the applicable compensation (based on assignment type and each college/area's specific compensation schedules), apply contract language, and establish a payroll action record for review, authorization, and acknowledgment by a variety of roles, all occurring electronically. This eliminates the current requirements to print authorization forms and re-enter job data after approval.

Key Features:

  • Ability for faculty/employee to acknowledge each assignment, prior to processing for payment.
  • Faculty/employee view of individual assignments, including course detail and compensation associated with each assignment.
  • Functionality to accommodate both instructional and non-instructional assignments.
  • A comprehensive, electronic process, with audit mode, to create job records in Banner HR, to be used in processing actions to employees paychecks.
  • Uses standard Banner functionality to eliminate maintenance and obsolescence of custom-built applications and save time and money.


*At UNCW, Banner FLAC is used to capture instructional assignments for any employee assigned as instructor of record in Banner (with the exception of graduate students) and any non-instructional assignments for EHRA employees whose home department is within Academic Affairs. Additional assignments (including teaching for graduate students), and non-instructional assignments for SHRA exempt & EHRA whose home department is outside of Academic Affairs will be captured through EPAF (Electronic Personnel Action Form).
