Salaries are assigned which fall within these ranges. Annual evaluations are conducted to determine effectiveness in terms of academic instruction, mentorship, and professional productivity.

Salary payments are disbursed on a semi-monthly basis on the 15th and the last day of each month. If these dates fall on a holiday or a weekend, payments will be disbursed on the last workday before the holiday or weekend with the exception of Winter Break during which salary payments will maintain the standard payment schedule.
