Does anyone know what the standard raise is (if there is one) for when people go from Assistant to Associate professor? For example, say you were making 80,000 a year when you go up for tenure. 10%? 5%? 15%?

Varies by university. Ours is a flat rate dollar amount and not a percentage. Ours is currently around $8500.
Ours is a $9000 flat increase to base salary. $12000 from associate to full.
Wow! I only got a 5k increase from asst to assoc, and that was far higher than the raise used to be at my uni.
Also, "say you were making 80k when you go up for tenure"….. I'm an assoc and I don't make 80k yet. With my raise that goes into effect Oct 1, I finally cracked 70k!
Note that APA reports 77k as the average salary for an associate prof as of 2012-2013. https://www.apa.org/workforce/publications/12-fac-sal/report.pdf … 67k for assistants. Just saying!
I was recently promoted from Asst. to Associate, and the increment was a flat $7,200. I believe it is a flat amount of $9,000 for moving from Associate to Full at my institution.
I'm in year 5 and just broke 80K. Private R2 and recognize that I'm very fortunate.
I think that these values ($5K - $10K) are pretty standard. At my former institution it was a whopping $1500. No, I did not leave off a 0 at the end of that number.
My college starts assistant profs in the 70s and then gives about a three percent increment each year, through and including promotion to associate.
Your best source for all such questions is the AAUP salary data: http://data.chronicle.com/faculty-salaries/
Also look for salary tables by rank and year in the faculty handbook of the specific schools you are applying to, if these are posted online.
