New Hire

New Hire Documentation

Students who have not worked on campus before and have applied, interviewed, and been offered a non-work study position will receive an email with a link to Talent Management to complete the required new hire documentation.  In the onboarding portal, you will be assigned the “Student 1 Checklist,” which includes all required documents including Section 1 of the I-9 form.  Once onboarding in Talent Management is complete, students should visit Human Resources & Payroll at 302 H.F. Robinson to complete the required payroll forms and the last section of the I-9. Students may not begin working until the payroll and I-9 forms are completed.  

Students, please note that Human Resources can only accept original documents to satisfy I-9 requirements. Scanned or faxed copies of the required documents will not be accepted. Students may not work until they have presented the documents in their original form. For further information, please contact Human Resources & Payroll at 828.227.7218.
