Teaching Incentive Program (TIP)
The University of Central Florida’s Teaching Incentive Program (TIP) rewards sustained high levels of teaching effectiveness. The university awards as many as 40 new TIPs to the colleges each year. The number of TIP awards available in a college is based on the total number of eligible faculty in a given year. Eligible faculty must have been employed by UCF for at least four (4) years and meet or exceed median student credit hour (SCH) production at one of the following levels:
- Undergraduate and graduate SCHs combined at the department level
- Undergraduate and graduate SCHs combined at the college level
- Graduate SCHs at the department level
- Graduate SCHs at the college level
SCH instruction includes classroom, web, and media-enhanced courses.
SCH excludes student credit hours for individualized instruction such as independent studies, practicums, internships, supervised research, dissertations, and theses. SCH also excludes student credit hours for overload assignments.
Summer teaching assignments are not included
