New Adjunct Faculty Employee Resources

Welcome to Cal Lutheran! To get set up as an employee in the system and gain access your course’s Canvas module (our online course management system), you will need to do the following: 

  1. Complete a background check. This is standard practice for all new employees. You should receive an email from CLU-HireRight within two business days. Please complete this as soon as you receive it.
  2. After you receive notification that your background check has cleared, you should receive an email from California Lutheran University (Subject: Action Required - Adjunct New Hire Documents - California Lutheran University) letting you know that you have tasks to complete as part of the Adjunct New Hire Checklist. Please complete these forms as soon as you can.
  3. Once you have completed the forms online, you’ll need to bring the appropriate identification for your I-9 paperwork on a follow-up visit with Human Resources (found onCampus Map). Please email Human  Resources ( or call 805-493-3185 to set up a time to go into the office with your documents.
  4. When your paperwork has been processed, you will be assigned a Cal Lutheran email address. We ask that you check this address regularly as it is the only means of communicating with you for a number of campus offices. This is also the email address that students will use to contact you.
  5. You will also need to get a parking permit for any vehicle you drive to campus. This is free and you are welcome to get a tag for each of your vehicles. You can apply for one at the following website: Campus Safety-Vehicle Permits. You’ll need your CLU email and password to do this.
