Account Creation Process

Below is a step-by-step process on how to request Accounts (Webadvisor, Email, and Blackboard) for Faculty, Staff, and Adjuncts. If you are a Faculty or Staff member you only need complete Step 1 and for support Step 3.


Step 1: Contact Human Resources at 215-951-2965

The Office of Human Resources will enter new or returning adjunct faculty information in Colleague. At a minimum, the following information needs to be entered - Name, SSN and Date of Birth. All relevant hiring information needs to be sent to HR.


Step 2 (For Adjunct Faculty Only): Contact the Registrars office at 215-951-2990

The Registrar’s Office will assign section information in Colleague to the new or returning adjunct faculty. All hiring departments should send the faculty teaching assignments to the Registrar’s Office at the same time hiring details are sent to HR.


Step 3 : Contact the Help Desk at 215-951-4648

The Office of Information Resources runs a process every night to check and see if any new or returning adjunct faculty whose information is complete (step 1 and 2) need email/WebAdvisor account. New accounts will be created and processed within 2 business days from when step 2 is completed.
