RSCC Policies & Guidelines
Roane State Community College
Policy Number: AA-04-01
Subject: Faculty Appointment and Salaries
Within the guidelines established by the Tennessee Board of Regents and the compensation plan for Roane State Community College, faculty members are appointed at a salary consistent with academic preparation and number of years' experience. Recommendations for salary increases are made on an annual basis and are a function of the TBR and legislative funding determinations.
Faculty members are usually employed on an academic year basis beginning with the notification from the Vice President for Student Learning for the fall term and continuing through graduation day without obligation for, or guarantee of, summer school employment. Salaries for the academic year are paid in twelve separate checks, beginning August 31 and ending July 31.
- Salary Adjustment
If a faculty member on an academic year contract is granted leave without pay or if employment is voluntarily terminated during the academic year contract period, the salary adjustment will be made as follows:
The employee's full academic term salary will be determined by dividing the annual (academic year) salary by the number of terms in the academic year. This will then be reduced by an amount equal to the number of work days absent, divided by the number of work days in a particular term, times the term salary.
- Conditions for Salary Determination
Initial rank is negotiable based upon experience and education.
- Credit for Prior Experience
Credit for prior experience as listed here is allowed only for salary considerations, not for tenure purposes.
|Non-teaching related experience
|Teaching experience for High School/College
|Teaching experience for Elementary or below
||Half credit allowed unless directly related; then full credit allowed
||The total part-time credit hours taught will be divided by 30 to equal the number of years granted. No more than one (1) year credit may be awarded in any twelve (12) month period.
Any exceptions to this salary guide must be approved by the president in advance.
- Credit Courses
Faculty compensation for teaching credit courses as an overload will be made in accordance with TBR Guideline P-055. Access the detailed TBR Guideline P-055 at https://policies.tbr.edu/.
Note: TBR policy 5:02:02:00 was replaced with 5:02:07:00 on 04/04/2004.
