BP 3-55 - Faculty Professional Advancement and Salary Plan

SP 3-55 - Faculty Pay Plan

BP 3-56 - Employee Compensation other than Base Salary and Benefits


Internships:  provide students with an opportunity to work in a job that is directly related to their particular field of study, while bridging that important gap between classroom instruction and practical work experience.

Independent Study:  An intensive study and/or research on a topic under the direction of a qualified faculty member.

The following compensation schedule will apply to those employees overseeing internship students and independent study students:

The pay will be calculated at five non-teaching hours at the established non-teaching rate (1/2 the current teaching rate) for each student enrolled in an internship or independent study.

For part-time instructors subject to limits on hours and credits taught and worked per semester, this assignment will be considered non-teaching.

Payment will be awarded when a grade is issued to the student.  It is the responsibility of the employee to request compensation.

Full-time faculty overseeing internship students or independent study students will be compensated in accordance with this procedure, unless it is part of their regular workload.
