6.7 FACULTY SALARIES
The timing of salary adjustments for full-time faculty varies based upon when funding is available. Action by the Virginia General Assembly is often required to provide authorization and funding for adjustments. All salary adjustments for full-time faculty are approved by the Board of Visitors before taking effect. Salary changes that take effect at the start of a contract year are conveyed in the reappointment letter, usually distributed in April or May. Salary changes occurring after the start of a contract year are conveyed by Salary Notification Letters, distributed after the Board of Visitors has approved salary changes. These letters are signed and returned to the Human Resources Office.
