Part-Time Faculty Compensation


Part-time faculty at COTC are paid an hourly rate based on their education level.

Degree Level Pay Rate
Associate or lower $38.50
Bachelor’s* $42.75
Master’s $47.60
Doctorate $48.25

​*Part-time clinical teaching assistants in healthcare programs are paid at the bachelor’s degree level.

The number of hours an instructor is paid is based upon the number of contact hours established for a course and the number of weeks a course is taught.

For example, if an English course is four contact hours taught for 15 weeks for a total of 60 contact hours by someone with a master’s degree paid at an hourly rate of $47.60, the total pay to teach that class would be $2,856.
