New Employee Checklist

There’s more to settling in than simply learning the tasks to master your new job. 

For everything from benefits enrollment to where you can and cannot park, there are a variety of things that you will want to consider during your first days and weeks with us. While some of the resources are provided simply to make you feel more comfortable and familiar with campus, there are also essential forms that must be completed and deadlines that must be met in order to keep your employment in good standing.

This checklist can serve as your step-by-step guide to ensure that you have access to all of the forms, resources, activities and timelines necessary to keep you on the right track.
