Thank you for your interest in teaching for us.

Adjunct professors are compensated based on the number of credits taught in a given semester. Compensation is further broken down by Step 1 and Step 2 pay grade. All adjunct faculty are initially classified as Step 1 and automatically progress to Step 2 after completing their third semester of actively teaching for the department. Adjuncts who do not possess a doctoral degree are ineligible from progressing to Step 2. Each semester, the department issues Letters of Appointment (LOA) to adjunct faculty, which reflect classes/credits taught and the total amount of pay.

- Step 2 pay/credit – $1,201
- 70 students or more +$50/credit
