  1. Step Advancement
    Step advancement occurs with an accumulated 18 credit hours or 180 total hours or an equivalent combination of the two. To calculate step advancement, hours are totaled for the preceding summer through spring terms. Step advancement is retained regardless of the length of an employee’s separation from the college.

    Step advancements are effective the first working day following the last day of summer term each year with the exception of special recognitions to part-time faculty (see below).

  2. Recognition Within an annual time frame, each instructional division will have the option of designating noncontracted faculty members for special recognition. Community education may designate part-time faculty from each center. The number of faculty designated for special recognition by each instructional division and center will be determined annually by Academic Affairs. Special recognition will include a one step merit pay increase, unless the employee is already at the top step. Specially recognized part-time faculty who are already at the top step will receive a stipend.

The amount of the stipend will be determined annually by Academic Affairs.
