Understanding Adjunct/FHSU Online Contract Delivery & Pay Dates

Contract Delivery

After an adjunct or FHSU Online faculty member is hired and has completed HR onboarding, below is the workflow for processing adjunct contracts: 

1) 3-6 weeks before semester starts, department chairs submit a “Chairs Report” to the Budget and Planning Assistant Director to indicate who is teaching which class.
 

2) Depending on the details of the courses assigned to you, your contract will be distributed within the first month of the semester starting. It will be delivered in one of two ways: 

3) Factors that impact the timeline of your contract delivery: 

  • A) Hire date and/or start date in Workday (including the Tech Services onboarding checklist) 
  • B) Chair Reports from each department indicating type, duration, and special arrangements for the course (8-week courses, lab, etc.) 

 

4) If you are concerned about the status of your contract, please contact your department chair. 

Pay Dates

To estimate when you’ll receive your first paycheck, please the consider the following:

1) First, check your contract for course dates to align with the pay date schedule
 

2) The first pay date depends on the duration of course, the start date of the course, and the way the 20th day of class falls within the pay date schedule. For example, for 16-week courses, the first pay date falls approximately 4 weeks after the 20th day of class.
