What is the difference between an Academic Year (AY or 10-month) and a 12-month (12-mo) position?  How do I know which one I am?

If you are asking the question, then you are probably Academic Year!  Most CSUF faculty are in an Academic Year position, which means they work during the school year, and they are off during the summer.  However, both Academic Year and 12-mo faculty are paid in 12 monthly paychecks.  That way  Academic Year faculty can continue to receive salary and benefits during the summer.

An example of a  12-mo faculty position would be a librarian faculty that works throughout the year and does not get a summer break.  Or a faculty member who directs a center on campus which is open year round.

If you only teach one semester per year, you will normally receive your pay in 6 monthly paychecks.

How do I use the CSU Salary Schedule?

Example: If you are an Academic Year lecturer, Range 2, then enter “2358” for the classification code. This will bring up a table showing the minimum and maximum for the different lecturer ranges.  Then click on Range 2 for more information.  Doing that will also reveal the Service Maximum for that particular range.
