I was hired as an assistant prof in English at my college in early June. I moved my household about 400 miles in late July. I began the orientation meetings at my college on Aug 16. I will not be paid until Sept 29. There is no moving allowance. But Human Resources did tell all us new hires of local banks that will give "small loans" with "low interest rates" if we show the loan officers our contracts.

How long will it be at your college/school until you are paid?

It depends on what the local faculty association/teachers federation negotiates
with the employers.
The arrangements can vary considerably. Talk to the faculty rep at your college.
You might also ask the rep if the association offers new teachers interest-free loans.
