The College has two different salary schedules for non-tenure track faculty. The goal is to provide flexibility in setting compensation, give that instructor qualifications and experience vary. Additionally, not all units require eight courses per non-tenure track faculty. Thus, units should set non-tenure track faculty compensation according to the following:

  • Number of courses needed
  • Experience of the non-tenure track faculty
  • Extent to which other instructional duties are required

Compensation is negotiated between the Chair/Director and the Associate Dean, which is based on two different schedules as outlined below:

Schedule 1: Arts & Humanities and Select Social Science Departments

- Based on full-time appointments over Academic Year -

Number of Courses Salary Range Percent Appointment
4 courses $23,000 - $28,900 50.00%
5 courses $29,000 - $35,000 62.50%
6 courses $36,000 - $40,000 75.00%
7 courses $40,100 - $44,000 87.50%
8 courses $44,100 - $48,000 100.00%

Other Duties

Academic units have the option to assign other duties in lieu of a class section or course. This option is reserved for cases where the other duties directly support delivery of instruction, student learning, curriculum development, and co-curricular activities. These other duties, in support of teaching, do not include activities defined as service, such as routine work-related activities (faculty meetings, course scheduling meetings, career advice to students, etc.), and other activities essential to smooth operation of the department. In the interest of consistency, units should check with an Associate Dean as to whether or not other duties qualify as instructional.


Credit Hours

The above Schedules are based on 3-credit hour courses. For courses less or more than 3 credit hours, the % FTE and salary are to be pro-rated. Units should check with an Associate Dean on prorating.
