New Faculty Information


Congratulations on your acceptance as part of the St. John’s University Faculty community. In an effort to make your transition to our campus as smooth as possible, we have prepared this section of the Provost’s site as a channel to the information you need. Just follow the links provided below.

Paperwork and Logistics

UIS (University Information System) is the management software, which the university uses to maintain information on all students and employees. It is important to note that your information will not be entered into UIS until all your employment paperwork has been completed. You can check with your chair’s office to make sure that you have completed everything and that it has been submitted. 
Once you are entered into the system you will be able to:

  • Obtain an ID card, called a StormCard, which provides access to the University Libraries
  • Access email
  • Access Signon, the University’s Login application for students and employees which provides secure access to your courses, UIS, Outlook, and many other University applications.
  • Apply for a parking permit
