Part-time Term Semester Faculty or Adjunct Faculty

Part-time Term Semester Faculty or Adjunct Faculty are hired on a semester or academic year basis to teach specific courses or set of courses. The employing department determines salaries and salary increases for this group.

Part-time faculty receive a sick leave benefit proportionate to their teaching load and a Tuition Waiver  of up to four credit hours for each semester taught. The tuition waiver may be used either in the semester in which it is earned or in the semester immediately following. Faculty who earn the waiver in the Spring may use it in Spring, Summer or carry it to the Fall semester. Unused or partially unused waivers may not be banked or carried forward for use in other terms.
