Compensation: XX per hour, what does this mean?


Recommended Posts

I've been looking at some adjunct positions and some of them advertise their compensation as being XX amount per hour. Now, since these are part-time positions, I'm wondering what this actually means. Is this XX for every hour taught? XX for every hour of class + office time? Or is it XX for every hour of a standard part-time contract (so 20-25h a week)? Perhaps it changes based on the institution, but I was wondering if anyone knew what the standard was.

At my institution, it is based on credit hour, so you just multiply that by what the credit hours are (is it a 3 credit course, 4 credit, etc.). That's the most common I've seen, but that could definitely vary per school.

Are credit hours calculated on a weekly basis? Sorry, I’m an international student, not sure what the specifics are.
