Returning Faculty Checklist

Below is a checklist to help you navigate the University and administrative procedures for classes at Metropolitan College. If you have any questions, please contact the MET Dean’s office.

Payroll Forms

If you have not been teaching consecutive semesters, please check with Rosalyn Susana at Metropolitan College Finance, 755 Commonwealth Avenue, Room B4, to make sure your information is still on file. You can also visit the BUworks Central Portal and click on the Employee Self-Service tab to update your payroll information. If you had a change of address please notify metacad@bu.edu as mailings are sent from a separate database.

Parking Permits

Evening parking permits are available for faculty free of charge. Please fill out a white permit application (available in your orientation packet) and return it to the MET Dean’s office. Daytime permits are available, for a fee, from Parking Services.

Information for the MET Dean’s Office

In order to relay important University-related information efficiently and quickly, we must have accurate faculty contact information on file in our database. Please be sure to update your details with us each semester.

  • Syllabi

    Please email us the syllabus for your class as soon as it is completed, even if this is a rough draft version to be edited throughout the semester. We keep copies of syllabi in our office for future reference.

  • Email Address Confirmation

    Along with your syllabus, please confirm your current email address. This is our main form of communication with professors. To ensure that you receive important updates and information throughout the semester, we must have accurate information on file. Please use your BU email for communication with students.

  • Contact Information Confirmation

    Please also confirm with us your mailing address and phone number, especially if you have moved since the last time you taught at Metropolitan College.

Final Exams

At the beginning of each semester, you will be receiving an email from the Staff Coordinators at the MET Dean’s office. The email will request that you review the final exam matrix to find the date and time of your exam and confirm with the office whether you will be holding an exam. Final exam times are fixed by the Office of the University Registrar and cannot be changed. Several weeks into the semester you will receive an email with directions on how to check your scheduled exam time and room. Learn more about final exams.

Attendance Indicator

Several weeks into the semester you will receive an Attendance Indicator, which is a list of students who have not settled their accounts with the University. Please review this list and respond to the MET Dean’s office by fax (617-353-6066) , email, or phone (617-353-3000) to indicate whether or not these students have attended your class. Do not send your response by regular mail as this takes too long.

Internal Attendance Verification

You may receive an email at some point during the semester (or after the end of the semester) inquiring about the attendance record of a specific student in your class. This is an internal process regarding a student who has taken a Metropolitan College class but is contesting the tuition payment. It is important to respond to this promptly and accurately with a numeric value of how many classes the student attended, if at all.

Course Evaluations

Around three weeks before the end of the semester, you will receive a packet of course evaluations sent to your home address. Please give these to a student in your class to distribute, collect, and return to the MET Dean’s office. Please allow about fifteen minutes of class time for evaluations. They must be completed by your last class and returned by the student. Faculty should not handle any completed evaluations.

Submitting Grades

For information on submitting grades, refer to the Office of the University Registrar’s instructions and step-by-step overview.
