Contracts will be emailed to adjunct four to six weeks before the start of the term. After the contract is processed, about a month before the start of the term, you will have access to Cardinal Students, Cardinal Faculty and Staff, Blackboard, library databases and other campus privileges.

ID card

Once you have been entered into the Catholic University system, you will be eligible for a Cardinal Card, an official Catholic University photo identification card which can be programmed to give you after-hours access to the law school building, where the department's offices are located. Cardinal Cards are issued at the Transportation and Parking Office located next to the information desk in the Pryzbyla Center.  


You may complete or change your W2 & W4 forms either in person at the CatholicU Payroll Office in Leahy Hall; or you may download the forms and send the completed forms via email to Employee Self-Service in Cardinal Station is also an option for updating W2 info.

Please choose direct deposit to save trees and postage and to enjoy the convenience of having your salary automatically deposited into your account of choice. Elect or change direct deposit at any time by clicking on "Employee Self-Service" in Cardinal Faculty and Staff or complete the direct deposit form and send via email to or via fax 202-319-6440.

Library privileges

In order to check books out of the Catholic University and WRLC libraries and access library databases from off campus, you will need to activate your library privileges. You can do this by bringing your Cardinal Card to the circulation desk in Mullen Library to be activated. You will use your CatholicU username and password to access library databases off campus.  


You must display a valid parking permit on your vehicle to park anywhere on campus other than parking meters. Permits can be purchased at the Office of Transportation and Parking Services, 242 Pryzbyla Center. You must have a valid Catholic University ID to purchase a permit. Faculty are permitted to park in Faculty/Staff and general parking spaces only. Faculty who park in spaces reserved for residential students will be ticketed.

Adjunct google group

The Department of Library and Information Science maintains a google group for adjunct faculty members. Its purpose is to provide adjunct faculty members a forum to discuss common issues.  If you have any questions contact the department.

Getting access to Catholic University Email, Network, Blackboard, and Cardinal Station

Your Catholic University network login will give you access to computers on campus, your Catholic University email account, Cardinal Station and your faculty home page. Blackboard is the Learning Management System that you will use to interact with your students online during the course (provide access to course materials, conduct discussion forums, receive completed assignments, etc.). In Cardinal Students you may view your official class roster and will submit your grades when the course is finished.

You will need to call the Technology Services (202-319-4357) to get your login for Cardinal Station as well as for your CUA network login. Your Blackboard login is the same as your network login.
