Faculty Salary Schedule

Twelve-Month Faculty

Each full-time faculty on annual or continuing contract receives a contract beginning July 1 through June 30. For classes which begin prior to July 1, the rate of pay will be based upon the faculty rank on the first day of the class. The base salary for a twelve-month contract is determined as follows:

Academic Rank Minimum Maximum
Instructor $55,600-$62,667 $84,000

Temporary Full-Time Faculty

Daytona State College employs temporary full-time faculty as needed to provide instruction for unanticipated situations due to increased student demand. A temporary semester contract is for one semester or less and has no associated benefits. In situations where a temporary faculty member is hired for more than one major consecutive semester within the same teaching discipline, the temporary faculty will have associated benefits.

Nine-Month Faculty

Each full-time faculty member on an annual contract or continuing contract receives a nine-month contract beginning in August and covering the two major semesters (spring and fall) of the academic year. All faculty are required to attend planning sessions the week(s) prior to the fall and spring semester(s) and one commencement ceremony in May. Pay raises, if effective during the summer, will be effective on the first faculty duty day of the new academic contract period (August) for nine-month faculty. The base salary for a nine-month contract is determined as follows:

Academic Rank Minimum Maximum
Instructor* $42,000-$47,000 $63,000

Summer Contracts

A summer contract may be awarded to nine-month faculty depending on enrollment and schedule. Summer contracts are not a guarantee from year to year and are given at the discretion of the Department Chairperson with approval from the academic Associate Vice President.

Summer Pay for Nine-Month Faculty

Summer pay is based upon faculty rank, load, and number of weeks. For instance, a faculty with professor rank teaching 6 hours/week over 6 weeks will receive the contract amount of $8100; 8 hours/week over 8 weeks - $10,800; 10 hours/week over 10 weeks - $13,500; 12 hours/week over 12 weeks - $16,200.  Depending on the courses being taught, the compensation may be spread over 6 weeks, 10 weeks, or over 12 weeks for those nine-month faculty who have a faculty load type (FLT) of 15 or 20.

The number of summer office hours will be two (2) hours per in-load course being taught. For online, the number of office hours will be equivalent to the number of load credits taught. All office hours are on campus.

Adult Education nine-month faculty will provide 20 hours of contact instruction over the six-week period. Office hours will be determined by the academic Associate Vice President during that time period. Compensation will be based upon faculty rank as noted in the chart below.

Adult Education 20 Hours

Assistant Professor $7,200
Associate Professor $7,650
Professor $8,100

Nine-month faculty teaching in the postsecondary adult vocational (PSAV) and apprenticeship (APPR) programs and faculty members who are not teaching but are conducting grant-funded activities or research during the summer will be compensated at 1/6 of their salary for six weeks. If additional hours are required to complete, the academic Associate Vice President and the Vice President of Academic Affairs/College Provost will approve a prorated salary beyond the six-week contract.

Office & On-Campus Hours

Office hours for nine-month faculty during the fall and spring semesters will continue to follow the model based upon the faculty load type (FLT) as noted in the table below:

26-50 students = 15 hrs. / Week x 17 weeks @$40.00
51-100+ students = 20hrs. / Week x 17 weeks @$40.00

Compensation For Chair/Assistant Chair Duties

The annual salary of Department Chairs will be equal to the nine-month salary annualized to a twelve-month salary plus an annual stipend equivalent to an additional 10% of the annualized twelve-month salary as of July 1 of that academic year, for the duration of their assignment as department chair. Additional information can be found in the table below for Chair and Assistant Chair Release and Stipends.

Assistant Chairs may be paid for work during the summer terms regardless of whether they also teach classes. This work typically involves refining the schedule, interviewing potential adjuncts, recruitment activity, textbook ordering, student advisement and related activities. This work can take place over summer A, summer B, or spread over both terms. Regardless of term, the work of the assistant chair over the summer is expected to be a total of 75 hours, which is 12.5 hours per week over Summer A or Summer B, or 6.25 hour per week over both terms. Payment should be made on a supplemental pay form using the first and last dates of the appropriate term(s).

For Directed Independent Study (DIS) and Cooperative Education (Co-op), pay will be computed by multiplying the appropriate contact hour pay rate by the number of course credit hours for each student section taught (maximum of five (5) students per term unless approved by the Associate Vice President).

In special circumstances, faculty teaching unique, short-term courses will be provided appropriate supplemental pay as determined by the President. Hourly rates may differ with new programs initiated during 2021-2022.
