Account Creation Process

Below is a step-by-step process of how to request accounts (Webadvisor, Email, and Blackboard) for faculty, staff, and adjuncts.

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

The Office of Human Resources will enter new or returning adjunct faculty information in Colleague. Name, SSN and Date of Birth need to be entered in to Colleague. 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 daily check to see if any new or returning adjunct faculty, whose information is complete (step 1 and 2), need an email/WebAdvisor account. New accounts will be created and processed within 2 business days from when step 2 is completed.


Checking on the Status of An Account

Faculty members can check the status of an account in two ways

 1. Go to "Contacts" in Outlook and find your name.

2. Use the report (http://myinfo.philau.edu - > Public - > New Faculty Hire)
