Note to Part-Time Instructors

It has come to our attention that the UK Police Department, in its ongoing efforts to improve campus security, is working to require students, faculty, and staff to use a UK ID card in order to access UK campus buildings (and classrooms) after 5:00 pm.  This may eventually impact you as a part-time instructor teaching an evening class.  Since we do not know the timetable for the completion of this UK project—it could take many months—we would encourage you to consider getting a UK ID (known as a “WildCard” ID) during any semester in which you anticipate teaching an evening class.

  • As a part-time instructor, your UK ID is valid for one year from the date it is issued.
  • The UK ID card only gives you access to the specific building and classroom in which you are assigned to teach.  For example, if you are scheduled to teach in the Don and Cathy Jacobs Science Building (JSB), you will have access to that building and the assigned classroom.

How to get a UK ID Card?

Sharon Hodge will be happy to work with you in getting a UK “WildCard” ID.  Sharon has a form that you can pick up from her and can take to the UK WildCard ID office at the Student’s Center. There is a $17 cost for the card, but the college will pay for your first card.  If you lose your card, you will need to pay for its replacement.

Location of the UK WildCard ID office is A380 in the new Gatton Student Center and Additional Information Regarding the UK ID Card
