I am currently trying to find out information in my home state, CO, about teaching at the community college level. I'm just not sure how the salary would be determined. I do expect to start/stay part time, and may split my time amongst colleges.

So, what can I expect from this prospect? Thanks, Carl
SSpil Where I am they pay about $1200 per credit hour with no benefits. For someone in my area (Physics/Engineering) with an advanced degree that is laughable compensation. Obviously most adjunct faculty don't do it for the benefits. It will vary by state and even by area within the state. Here it is a set rate determined by the local group of colleges. ...See More

rw Hi Carl, When you're working at multiple college part-time, pay is typically $1500-2500 a course or so.

I am currently working for 3 colleges. I can make about $30K fairly easily but that's without benefits, so after paying for my own health insurance and retirement it's more like $20K.

rw It depends on if you're full-time. If you are, your salary will be $30-55 or so with benefits for teaching about 8-10 classes/year.

If you're part-time you can make that for about 16-20 classes/year without benefits.
