Adjunct Faculty Toolkit

Welcome to Saginaw Valley State University. You are an important part of the dynamic learning environment at SVSU. The contents noted below are intended to guide you through the required employment paperwork and provide directions on completing the Year Contracts/Section Assignment and course preparation process. You may view the Adjunct Faculty Pay Scale HERE

Upon hiring, A-Check Global will contact you via your personal email account to initiate the required background check.  Please complete the information requested promptly and in its entirety, as payroll forms and Yearly Contracts, and Section Assignments cannot be processed until the background check is completed.
