·           Use of the library facilities for research, interlibrary loans, borrowing of books from our collection, and to provide bibliographic instruction for students in the instructor’s class(es)

·           With no tuition charge, an adjunct faculty member may enroll in undergraduate courses each term equal to the number of courses taught by said adjunct in that same term.  The adjunct faculty member may defer such tuition-free enrollment to a subsequent term, but not later than the summer following the term in which the teaching is performed.  A music teacher who gives private music lessons to 10 or more students in a term at the College may enroll in one undergraduate course unit without tuition charge, with deferment no later than the summer following the term in which the teaching is performed.  Enrollment is on a space-available basis.  Though tuition charges are waived, the faculty member is responsible for any course fees (such as lab fees, field experience fees, etc.), books or additional costs associated with the course(s).

·           In some cases, adjunct faculty may apply for funding to support professional development.  Individual faculty should consult with the chair of the department in which they are teaching.  First priority is given to full-time faculty who are presenting papers or traveling for research purposes.
