Manner and Schedule of Payment to Faculty and Faculty Administrators

Faculty on twelve-month contracts and faculty administrators are paid semimonthly over a twelve-month period. Faculty with academic year appointments are also paid over 24 pay periods for 12 months. Payments are issued by Old Dominion University through the Payroll Office. Part-time faculty teaching during regular semesters and the summer session are paid on a modified schedule of payments available from the Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.

           Direct deposit is mandatory for all newly hired employees and is strongly encouraged for all employees as a means to address many of the logistical issues associated with payment distribution. The form required to establish direct deposit is available on the Old Dominion University web site. Additional information regarding direct deposit can be obtained by contacting the Payroll Office.


Extra Compensation in Off-Term Sessions

Full-time faculty members may teach in the off-term session [1]and earn extra compensation. The rate for full-time off-term employment, including research employment, shall not exceed the weekly equivalent (1/39th) of the full-time academic-year salary of the individual staff member nor may the total salary payments in the off-term exceed 13/39 or 1/3 of the normal academic year salary. Six semester hours is normally considered a full teaching load in the off-term. Full-time faculty members' off-term salaries are calculated according a step-by-rank schedule available from the Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.
