Salaries, Seasonal


The provost is provided a limited amount of "seasonal" monies each fiscal year to fund additional sections of high enrollment classes or meet the need for a special class/learning experience not identified in the development of the original schedule of classes for a semester.

Payment Procedures

1. The standard rate of remuneration per credit hour for all nine-month, core faculty teaching a course funded by seasonal monies is 20 percent of 1/9 of the instructor's regular academic year base salary. Salaries for chairs and other administrators teaching these courses will be calculated on the nine month component of a 12-month contract.

2. The rate of remuneration per course for part-time adjunct instructor teaching a course supported by seasonal monies will be as follows:

Years of Service as Adjunct Salary per "0" Courses Per Hour Salary for Other Type Courses
0-3 $2495 $832
4-6 $2695 $898
7-10 $2895 $965
11 and above $3095 $1032

1.  Faculty will be paid $15 per credit hour for each student above 40 in an off-campus class.

2.  All off-campus courses with enrollment below 10 will be pro-rated.

3.  This payment schedule applies to all new on-campus part-time adjuncts eliminating the prior on-campus model of $2500 and $3000.

3. Deans/chairs should submit requests for use of seasonal monies to the provost. No contract requests will be processed unless prior permission to fund a class has been granted from the provost. Salaries must be negotiated for longevity before a contract will be issued. A budget assignment form (available in the Office of the Provost) will be signed by the provost and submitted to Office of the Provost staff for processing.
