Adjunct Credentialing Process

Here is a break down of all there is to know about the adjunct credentialing process. For additional questions regarding these procedures, please contact Dustin Atchley, Academic Operations Coordinator, at dlatchley@seu.edu.

Regional Campus/Extension Site Adjuncts

  • Potential adjunct professors for a regional campus or extension site should speak with that site’s director about available positions. Site directors can connect with our adjunct coordinator at UEadjunctcoordinator@seu.edu to initiate the adjunct credentialing process.
  • Upon recommendation from a site director, the adjunct coordinator will send potential adjuncts the adjunct application packet via email. The packet will include instructions for submitting a resume and official transcripts. Any transcripts that are sent for vetting purposes must be sent directly to Southeastern University from the issuing institution.* We cannot accept forwarded digital transcripts or previously-opened physical transcripts.
  • Once we receive the adjunct application packet, resume and official transcripts, we review the applicant’s credentials. Our academic chairs and academic dean will then review this information to identify which courses the applicant is qualified to teach.
  • Once credentialing is complete, the site director will be provided the list of courses the potential adjunct can teach, and will work with our scheduling team to assign an on-site course as applicable/available.
  • Once Southeastern has a course identified for the applicant, their file will be submitted to the Adjunct Contracts office. This office works with our Human Resources Department to perform the final stages of the vetting process, which include a final credential review and a background check.
  • Following a clear background check, the adjunct will receive a “Next Steps Letter” with directions for accessing their SEU email account. They will be sent two emails on this account containing the final HR new-hire paperwork. The vetting process is complete once the adjust sends in this final paperwork and it is received by the University.

Online Adjunct

  • Openings for online adjunct instructors are posted on Southeastern University’s Open Positions page along with instructions for applying. Submitted applications are reviewed by the appropriate academic chair who will then contact the applicant.
  • Upon recommendation from an academic chair, the adjunct coordinator will contact potential online adjuncts via email with instructions for submitting official transcripts. Any transcripts that are sent for vetting purposes must be sent directly to Southeastern University from the issuing institution.* We cannot accept forwarded digital transcripts or previously-opened physical transcripts.
  • Once we receive the adjunct application packet, resume and official transcripts, we review the applicant’s credentials. Our academic chairs and academic dean will then review this information to identify which courses the applicant is qualified to teach.
  • The adjunct’s department chair will work to identify a course for the adjunct to teach. Once this has been determined, the file is submitted to the adjunct contracts office. This office works with our Human Resources Department to perform the final stages of the vetting process, which include a final credential review and a background check.
  • Following a clear background check, the adjunct will receive a “Next Steps Letter” giving with directions for accessing their SEU email account. They will be sent two emails on this account containing the final HR new-hire paperwork. The vetting process is complete once the adjust sends in this final paperwork and it is received by the University.
