You might be better off picking up aluminum cans by the highway
Adjunct Faculty (Current Employee) – Normal, AL – September 7, 2018
This job is fine if you are just wanting to get out of the house for awhile, or want a little extra money. You will starve if you try to live on the wages though. Here's the lowdown: You get $900 a credit hour [before taxes] for classes that have at least 10 people in them. For low enrollment classes, you may only get half that. You are limited to two classes [6-8 hours] total per semester. That's 10,800-14,400 per year [not very many summer classes]. You will have to teach class for 1 1/2 months before you get paid for it. You have to have at least a Master's degree, and you have to be credentialed in the course material that you are teaching.
You can teach. You get about 1200/mo.
No benefits or job security, grossly underpaid
