Steps to Hiring an Adjunct

Hiring Process with Human Resources

  1. Each Department’s Office Coordinator or Administrative Assistant submits to HR:
    • New Faculty Member Information form (NFM)
      • Page 1 completed by adjunct
      • Page 2 by department
      • This form must be completed electronically with all fields populated and digital dynamic approval stamps at the bottom of page 2
    • Background check authorization
    • CV
  2. Once HR receives these 3 items, we will begin the hiring process in the following steps:
    • If they are a previous NU student or employee, they must be cleared through Student Financial Services and Student Development
    • Perform a background check
    • Contact IT to set up NU email & misc. needs
    • Contact the adjunct to set up an orientation date or send them a remote packet with all of the required forms. The orientation generally is an hour long meeting.
  3. Once all of the above steps have been completed and all documents have been signed/provided by the adjunct, HR will send a “cleared to work” email to the hiring supervisor.

***The adjunct is not permitted to work until you have received this email from HR***

 

Hiring Process if Adjunct is already hired with another department at NU:

  1. Your department would submit to HR:
    • New Faculty Member Information form (NFM)
      • Page 1 completed by adjunct
      • Page 2 by department
      • This form must be completed electronically with all fields populated and digital dynamic approval stamps at the bottom of page 2
  2. Once HR receives the NFM form, we will contact IT to let them know about the additional position and send you a “cleared to work” email to the hiring supervisor once the paperwork is processed.

***The adjunct is not permitted to work until you have received this email from HR***
