Starting Salary Range
low 40's to mid 50's (BA level); low 30's to high 30's (AS level)
Starting salary is dependent on education, directly related experience and internal equity. After completing the second probationary semester, the potential exists to earn additional compensation by teaching overload and spring/summer sessions. This additional compensation varies based on several factors, including educational level and step. For example, a faculty member with a Master’s degree at Step 0 who teaches 10 hours of overload during the fall and winter semesters would earn an additional $18,000. Teaching during the spring/summer sessions would also generate additional compensation beyond the base salary. Excellent benefits package. Click here to view our benefits summary.
