Faculty & Staff :: Faculty Handbook

Contracts & Pay Checks

Contracts are issued about two weeks after classes have begun. Please note that your pay is not released by Human Resources until all required documents (including official transcripts) are received.  Please be proactive about checking on these.

Pay Dates

Full-time faculty are paid bi-mothly, starting Sept. 1 thru May 16.

Adjunct faculty, who teach 16 week courses, are paid three times during the semester. These dates usually fall around Oct. 1, Nov. 1, and Dec. 1. For those teaching short 8 week sessions during the fall and spring semesters, you will be paid once for those classes. The first eight week session is paid around Oct. 1 and the second eight weeks around Dec. 1. Seminars are paid in full during the next pay period after the class ends.

The current pay schedule is available on VW Connect under Financial & Administrative Services.

Direct Deposit

All faculty, full-time and adjunct, will be required to sign up for direct deposit or to receive a payroll debit card. Paper checks will no longer be used. We strongly encourage everyone to use direct deposit because the debit cards are not insured and may not be accepted at all locations.
