The new contract, which goes into effect September 1st, includes three rates per qualified instructor. Qualified instructors range from special lecturer with a Bachelor’s or special certification and Master’s or higher teaching college level courses for the first time, to instructors with a Master’s or higher with college-level teaching experience and Doctorates or Masters with significant college-level teaching experience.
