Note: HR manages the onboarding of Term by Term Instructors after the hiring has been approved through the Provost Office. For more detailed information from the Provost office please click here.
Step 1. All Term by Term Adjunct instructors are required to apply to the corresponding Division’s Pool to be considered. Find the corresponding application to give to perspective applicants here.
Please contact HRS@sou.edu if you have issues accessing the applications.
Step 2. Locate and review the application materials of the person(s) you wish to hire, conduct an interview, then complete the TXT New Hire Questionnaire to notify the Provost Office of your request to hire a Term by Term. If an applicant does NOT hold at least a Master's degree, the requesting department is required to complete a TxT Exception Form.
(Please do not consider hiring someone who does not hold a Bachelor’s degree.)
Step 3. The Provost Office will mark “approved” on the Term by Term New Hire Sheet after they have confirmed the applicant meets the minimum qualifications, as outlined in the job posting.
Step 4. The Provost Approval in step 3 will initiate Human Resources to assign onboarding paperwork to the new employee (if necessary), including the New Employee SOU Account Request form to request an SOU account and email to be set up or reactivated. This form will be routed directly to the corresponding Program Chair and/or DIrector via our PeopleAdmin Onboarding system.
Step 5. Check column “ɪ” of the Term by Term New Hire Sheet for weekly updates from HR on the status of the newly hired employee’s onboarding paperwork, such as getting their 940# assigned, SOU email set up, and overall paperwork status.
