Temporary Part-Time Instructors

Criminal Background Checks

Must be performed on any new employee who will be employed more than 6 months.  Part-time instructors that receive both a Fall and Spring Semester Contract will need to complete a background check.  Please direct employees to 209 College Center to complete their criminal background check paperwork.  The background check process takes 2-4 days. 

Upon approval of the background check, the employee appointment paperwork can be completed.

For detailed information on criminal background checks, please refer to: https://www.k-state.edu/policies/ppm/4015.html
