Adjunct Resources: Before your course

Sign on Completion
After the sign on is completed, a contract will be created. Upon receiving the contract, the adjunct professor should review it carefully and ensure that the information contained in it is correct. The process of generating the first paycheck for the employee cannot proceed until the University has a signed contract. Once the adjunct faculty has signed the contract, it should be returned to the department so that it can be forwarded to the Dean’s Office, which, in turn, sends it to other university offices for the continuation of its processing.

Payroll
Adjunct faculty can expect to receive their first paycheck about 4-6 weeks after the Dean’s Office receives the signed contract. Thereafter, the employee will receive a paycheck every 2 weeks. Federal income tax, but not social security taxes, will be deducted from the paychecks. Adjunct faculty may contact payroll to have their checks deposited directly to their bank account.
On alternate Fridays, paychecks are sent to the hiring department where they are distributed by the staff. Adjunct faculty should discuss with the departmental staff the procedures to distribute paychecks.

Panther ID Card | onecard.fiu.edu
Adjunct faculty is eligible to receive a university ID card, which can also be used to check books out of the library. The PantherCard I.D. office is located in the Gold Parking Garage, PG 1 – 100. The PantherCard is activated for access to services and programs at all FIU campuses. It serves as a debit card for on-campus transactions at the Faculty Club, Game Room, cafeterias, Gracie’s Grill (University Park), bookstores, cashiers, TicketMaster (University Park), vending machines, Parking and Traffic, health centers, convenience stores, Pollo Tropical, Java City, computer stores, copy centers, and Panther Hall laundry machines.

Parking Decals | parking.fiu.edu
You must have a virtual decal to park on any FIU campus. You can obtain a decal by paying the appropriate fee at the Department of Public Safety. If you park on campus without a parking decal, you will be ticketed. The University police are certified law enforcement officers; in other words, they are authentic police officers and the tickets they issue cannot be ignored. If you get a ticket that you feel is undeserved, you can appeal it through the University Traffic Appeals Board. Appeal forms are available at the Department of Public Safety on each campus. Parking decals are available at a reduced rate to anyone making less than $25,000 annually, as an FIU employee. If you are teaching for only one semester, you can purchase a one-semester parking decal. Whatever your circumstances, be sure to purchase a decal. Failure to do so will result in expensive parking tickets.
