The current salary tables can be found in the APSCUF (Association of Pennsylvania State College & University Faculty) contract with the State System of Higher Education. These tables are in Article 22. You can use the link below to see them. The tables at the end of the document show four pay ranges Q01-Q04. These ranges correspond to the faculty ranks of Instructor, Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, and Professor. So, the current salary for an Instructor is between $40,599.83 and $60,020.15. The steps in between are annual increments based on the number of years the faculty has been in that rank. So, an Instructor may be hired at Step 1. The next year he or she will move to Step 2 and receive that salary. This continues until the faculty member reaches the last step in that rank. The only way a faculty may move between ranks is to apply for promotion. This salary schedule applies to all faculty at Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education schools. There are ways an individual can earn more than the posted salary by working Summer teaching contracts or taking Overload (working beyond the regular course load) assignments.
