Human Resources


Getting Started

We will need a few tasks completed and information from you. We require the following documents for those that are new to DSU, or if you are returning after a 12-month break. If you have any questions regarding the forms, contact Greg Esplin in Human Resources at, or leave him a message at (435) 652-7503.

We are excited to get you started as the latest member of the Trailblazer team!

As a helpful reference, download the Part-Time Instructor Checklist as a guide to ensure all employment forms are submitted to the Human Resources office. The department administrative assistant, or secretary may complete the form for the Part-Time Instructor.


All new Part-Time Instructor employees are to complete the application, detailing general information.

Online Application

New and returning Part-Time Instructor members are to complete Section 1of the online Employment Eligibility Verification (I-9) on or before your first day of employment. Once this is complete, employees bring the original acceptable forms of ID to the DSU Human Resources office to complete Section 2. The I-9 form is used for verifying the identity and employment authorization of individuals hired for employment in the United States. BOTH employees and employers must complete the form. New employees must bring original unexpired acceptable documents into the Human Resources office. Any expired documents, copies, faxes, digital copies, or unacceptable documents are not accepted and by bringing unacceptable types of documents will delay the process of payments. See the accepted documents for additional information.

That’s why we’re pleased to offer the SafeColleges online training system for our employees. Note, if the training is not completed 60 days after the hire date, a letter of non-compliance will be placed in the employee’s file. Enter your Dixie ID and password to finish the training after your position is created. Questions or concerns regarding the SafeColleges training, contact Civil Rights & Title IX Director Cindy Cole at


If you are a full-time exempt DSU Staff member, you may request to be a Part-Time Instructor. To get started, complete the Overload Assignment Authorization for each semester you plan on teaching part time. Thank you for your interest and dedication.

Download, complete, and submit to the Human Resources office as soon as possible.

Overload Assignment Authorization

Any missing items will delay processing and confirmation, and DSU will terminate an employee who fails to produce an acceptable document or documents, or an acceptable receipt for a document within three business days of the date employment begins. Thus, we appreciate your assistance when completing the employment forms promptly. Upon the successful completion of the new employee hiring process, you will have an email account created if you are new to DSU. Regularly check your DSU email account for important campus information.

Again, welcome to the Trailblazer team!


In fall semester Part-Time Instructor instructors get their first payment on September 30th and then get paid on the 15th and last day of each month until the 6th and final payment for the semester on December 15th.
In spring semester the first payment is on February 15th with payments continuing on the 15th and last day of each month. The final payment for spring semester is on April 30th.

Each department handles the hiring of Part-Time Instructors within their departments.

The department chairs and the Deans for each school are the best sources of information about available Part-Time Instructor positions.

During semesters in which you are working as an Part-Time Instructor you are allowed a tuition waiver of three credits or less. The tuition waiver can only be used once per academic calendar year. The tuition waivers do not extend to spouses or dependents of employees in this category and are non-transferable.

As soon as possible after being employed, new faculty should go to the Registration Office on the first floor of the Holland Building to get their picture taken for their DixieOne card. The DixieOne card will arrive in the mail; it looks like a debit card but will also serve as your ID card for a variety of university functions.
