A full-time College employee teaches credit hours beyond the duties specified in his/her contract will be paid for an overload teaching assignment.
An adjunct instructor is any individual contracted to teach one or more courses who is not a full-time employee. Adjunct instructors are part-time temporary employees who are hired on the recommendation of the Divisional Chair and approved by the Vice President for Academic Affairs and the President. Except as specifically approved by the President, employment and pay of adjunct instructors is on a course-by-course basis.
Rate of Pay
- The payment for an overload assignment, or summer school teaching, or adjunct instruction will be $475 per credit hour provided the course has sufficient enrollment or is otherwise authorized by the president or his/her designee.
- Upon consent of the instructor, recommendation by the Division Chair, and approval by the Vice President for Academic Affairs, pro-rated payments may be authorized for courses with low enrollments. Such pro-rated payments will be calculated at 10% of the rate of pay per credit hour times the number of students in the course.
