Faculty Pay

There is no such thing as a Faculty Stipend. Faculty are paid from grants based on percentage of effort of Institutional Base Salary.

Faculty cannot be independent contractors for any North Carolina state agency including UNCW.

Calculating Academic Year Course Buyout

Academic year 4/4 course load = 8 courses per academic year

  • 1 course out of the 8 academic year courses = 12.5% of academic year salary
  • 2 courses = 25% of academic year salary

*Need prior Departmental approval

Calculating Faculty Summer Pay

For a 9 month faculty appointment:

Institutional Base Salary divided by 9 = 1 month of pay

Ex. $65,000/9 = $7,222.22 = 1 month summer salary

*Summer pay must be based on previous year’s Institutional Base Salary
