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.
If you have not been teaching consecutive semesters, please check with Sergio Lemos at Metropolitan College Finance, 755 Commonwealth Avenue, Room B4, to make sure your information is still current. If you have not taught for BU within two years you may need to complete a New Employee Payroll form again. If you have moved, you will also need to visit the BUworks Central Portal and click on the Employee Self-Service tab to update your address and contact information. If you had a change of address please notify firstname.lastname@example.org as mailings are sent from a separate database.

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.
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.
Teaching Assignment Letters
Teaching Assignment Letters will be emailed to your BU email address. Please sign these and return them to the MET Dean’s office (755 Commonwealth Avenue, Room 103, Boston, MA 02215) as soon as possible. We must have these on file for payroll purposes.
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.
At the beginning of each semester, you will be receiving an email from the Administrative 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 through the Faculty Link 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.
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.
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.
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.
