Overloads for L&S Faculty, Academic Staff, University Staff and Limited Appointments

This document provides information on the policies and procedures for overloads.

UW-Madison policy allows for employees to work up to, but not beyond, 100 percent time. On occasion, however, an employee may be asked to perform duties outside of their normal work assignments such as teaching a non-credit outreach workshop, delivering a lecture at another UW System institution, working for another State agency, etc. as a "one-time only" activity. If compensated, such overload assignments are required to be requested in advance.   Departments should submit requests for overloads via the electronic overload system. Requests for Inter-Institutional Overloads should use the form available at:
