Recommendation for Adjunct Appointment / Reappointment Form


Adjunct appointments/reappointments with the appropriate title are made for persons invited to participate without pay in instructional or research programs on a renewable term basis. Adjunct appointments are used for individuals whose professional life is based outside the university or outside the appointing department with the university. Adjuncts receive no salary or health benefits. An adjunct never serves as the instructor-of-record.

Reminder: Adjunct requests and associated privileges submitted for approval cannot have retro-active start date

The Recommendation for Adjunct Appointment form must be completed by the department chair/school director (or other administrator initiating the recommendation) and approved by the dean before it is sent to AARM for review. Submit all NEW adjunct appointments for AA approval with the following attachments:

  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Signed Personnel Record Data Sheet
  • Confirmation of completed Criminal Background Check completed
  • UNCW One Card Identification (I.D.) Card Request (as needed)
    • Sponsoring dept./unit should keep a copy of I.D. card request, as a copy will be required by Card services to issue card.

All forms marked REAPPOINTMENT require I.D. card request form every year submitted if being requested, and an updated Personnel Record Data Sheet and Curriculum Vitae every 5 years.
Forms not filled out completely or lacking documentation will be returned.
