Biola seeks to provide regular, adequate compensation for its faculty and staff members.

Faculty appointments, with designated salaries, are made by March 15 of each year for the following academic year.

Salary for all teaching faculty are for 9, 10 or 11 months of service, paid semi-monthly over a twelve-month period beginning August 16 and concluding August 15 (or beginning September 1 and concluding August 31 for faculty hired before January 1997). If the regular payday falls on a Saturday, checks are distributed on Friday. Checks are issued by arrangement directly to the employee's bank account, or via mail. If a faculty member will be out of the area (vacation, school business, emergency, etc.) over a scheduled payday, a pay advance, limited to one pay period, may be requested.

The salary structure places emphasis on competence and performance, and the rank/level designations are to be a prime designator of competence and performance.

The following scale is for a standard, full-time, academic year contract.
