VI:02:06 Non-Credit CEU Adjunct Faculty Compensation

Purpose

The purpose of this policy is to provide information about the calculation of non-credit adjunct faculty salaries.

General Procedures

The rate of compensation for non-credit adjunct faculty is based on a number of factors including, but not limited to, compliance with TBR Guideline B-060. Factors include:

  • Qualifications or expertise required
  • Availability of qualified adjunct faculty
  • External market course fee rates
  • External market compensation
  • Hours of instruction
  • Customization of instruction as appropriate
  • Number of instructional meetings.

For regular and routine offerings, the salary is based on the non-credit program* fee assessed and may be expressed as a "per contact hour" or "per CEU" rate. A salary chart is maintained in the Division of Continuing Education and Economic Development.

Exceptions to the salary chart may be requested by one of the Division's directors and approved by the Assistant Vice President for Continuing Education and Economic Development.

For non-routine offerings or "special" offerings, the salary may be negotiated between the adjunct faculty and one of the Division's directors and approved by the Assistant Vice President for Continuing Education and Economic Development.

In all cases, revenues generated for the fiscal year must meet or exceed TBR Guideline B-060 (125% of instructional salaries).

* Program is defined as a single course or workshop/seminar as well as a series of courses leading toward a Certificate of Completion.
