What is Sessional Seniority?

Sessional Seniority is the number of course credits you have accumulated for teaching courses at the University of Windsor as a sessional instructor. This does not apply to faculty who are teaching an overload course. Your Sessional Seniority credit count can be viewed through the My File section of myUWinfo.                                         

Sessional Credit:               Your total accumulated course credits.


Last Term Count:              The number of course credits you accumulated last term.

Current Term Count:      The number of course credits for the courses you are teaching this term.


Prior to Y2K Count:          Total of Sessional Seniority Credit counts earned prior to 2000. 

After Y2K Count:               Total of Sessional Seniority Credit counts earned since 2000.

Adjusted Count:               Adjusted by HR for exception circumstances



I have my appointment for this term, why can’t I see it here?


Appointments for an upcoming or future term will not be included on the Sessional Seniority Summary Screen until that appointment has been entered into the HR database. Once that occurs your Sessional Seniority Summary count will reflect the new appointments. You should also notice that your Sessional Appointment will appear in myUWinfo under My File > Limited Term Contracts.                                                                                                                                                                    

“No Current Data” implies that you do not currently have a Limited Term Contract.
