Our scheduling is completed based on course enrollment. There is never a guarantee to teach every quarter. The Academic Dean will contact you before the term begins to extend you a teaching assignment. Courses may be canceled due to lack of student enrollment.

The textbook and/or digital content for each class has already been selected.
Rasmussen College’s adjunct faculty compensation is based on an individual’s educational achievements, teaching experience and campus location.
All adjunct instructors are paid on the same cycle as employees. Rasmussen abides by a “semimonthly” payroll schedule (24 payrolls per year which is 2 paydays per month). The work week is Saturday through Friday. Paydays are generally the 15th and the last business day of the month. If a regularly scheduled payday falls on a holiday or weekend, employees are paid on the last regular workday immediately preceding the holiday or weekend.
Our adjunct faculty members are considered part-time employees. You will be required to complete new hire paperwork which includes the Form I-9 and proof of eligibility to work in the United States. We also require all employees to successfully pass a background check. All pre-employment paperwork must be completed and cleared prior to teaching your first course.
Rasmussen College uses Angel, a web-based platform for our 11-week courses and Engage for our 6-week AcceleratED courses.
All instructors must have easy accessibility to the internet using Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Office 2007 or higher, and be able to download a web-based conferencing tool for faculty meetings. Some courses may require both students and instructors to have specific software.
Most of our standard 11-week courses are asynchronous, instructors are able to login and teach according to their schedule. Instructors must be available to login daily and there may be times when students need to reach out via chat or phone. All online courses require a live synchronous session, frequency of sessions vary based on the course requirements.
