Lecturer Salaries in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences
To provide guidelines for the salaries of lecturers in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences.
Lecturers in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences.
Fall and Spring semester salaries for lecturers shall be based on educational level, teaching experience, and the level and size of the course(s) being taught.
In the 2019–20 academic year, the following shall be minimum lecturer salaries based on educational level:
- for lecturers with master’s degrees: $4,500 per 0.25 FTE
- for lecturers with doctoral degrees: $4,750 per 0.25 FTE
Lecturers may periodically receive merit salaries increases. Therefore, an experienced lecturer may receive a salary higher than the educational-level minimum. Similarly, demonstration of previous teaching experience may justify a starting salary higher than the educational-level minimum.
A lecturer teaching a more advanced course may receive a salary higher than the educational-level minimum.
Normally, 0.25 FTE equates to one 3-credit-hour course. Courses with unusually small or large required levels of effort may equate to a smaller or larger FTE.
These guidelines do not apply to summer courses.
