Your First Week
1. Complete Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I-9)
Within three business days of the start date of employment, your Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I-9) must be completed with the Office of Human Resources.
Verification is a two-step process: following completion of Section One online, you must present original, unexpired documentation in-person at the Office of Human Resources to complete Section Two.
More about the Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I-9) process.
2. Begin gathering Dependent Verification documents (if needed)
If you will be enrolling dependents such as a spouse or a child in University benefit plans, you will soon need to provide documentation to verify each dependent’s relationship to you. Some of these documents may take time to obtain, so please review the University’s Dependent Verification instructions for assistance and deadlines.
3. Obtain your Campus ID card
After you complete Form I-9 with HR (see above), your Campus ID card with 9-digit NDID number will be provided to you.
Your Campus ID card can be used for building access, University Library privileges, RecSports facility access, Domer Dollars, discounts at the Hammes Bookstore and University Computer Service Center, and more. Your card must be renewed in person every five years.
Spousal ID card: Your spouse may also obtain a photo identification card in the Office of Human Resources. You do not need to be present. A marriage certificate and picture ID must be presented on-site. There is a $5.00 fee, payable by debit or credit card only, for the spousal ID.

Any questions about the department’s guidelines for attire should be discussed with your immediate supervisor.
Activate your NetID

Once your NetID account is created, you may activate it by first reading the Responsible Use Policy and taking a short quiz.
