New Employee Onboarding

Welcome to the University of Idaho! On this page you will find all the information you need to get started as a new employee.

Before starting work, you will need to complete your Form I-9 and onboarding paperwork. You may first be required to complete a criminal background check. Please review the pre-employment requirements below and contact Human Resources at hr@uidaho.edu or 208-885-3638 with any questions.

Pre-employment Requirements

A criminal background check is required for most university jobs. If a background check is required for your position, you will receive an email from our third-party vendor at clientservices@verifiedcredentials.com with instructions how to submit your information for the background check. Please note your background check must be completed and come back as satisfactory before you can complete your I-9.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding your background check, please contact your supervisor.

Once your background check has been approved and you have an established start date, you may visit Human Resources at 415 West 6th Street in Moscow to complete your I-9 and to receive authorization to start working. Our office hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.

The Form I-9 certifies that you are legally eligible to work in the United States. Your I-9 MUST be completed on or before your first day of work. You will need to present appropriate forms of identification.

If you will not be working on the Moscow campus, please review the list of U of I Authorized representatives that can assist with the I-9. If you will be working remotely and your work location is not near a U of I authorized representative, you can follow the instructions to complete a Remote I-9.

Benefit-Eligible Employees

Your department will work with the Office of Information Technology (OIT) to get your official U of I email account set up. Please review the OIT New Employee Guide for information on getting tech support, accessing email and file storage, and more.

After you have received your login credentials, go online to request a VandalCard. The VandalCard is your official university ID card and may be needed for building access.

Once your hiring paperwork has been processed, you will have access to set up direct deposit and W-4 tax deductions for your paycheck. You will receive an email from payroll@uidaho.edu when you can complete this, usually within two weeks of your start date.

Once you receive the notification, please follow the Direct Deposit and W-4 Setup Instructions

If you have a hourly position, you will also start tracking your hours via VandalWeb. Review time entry and leave information with your supervisor.

Please refer to our New Employee Benefit Resources for information on how to enroll in employee benefits. Be sure to also sign up for a Benefits Orientation to learn about your benefit options. Only register for an orientation that is on or after your first day of work!

Visit the Parking and Transportation Services Website for assistance with all of your parking needs.

Once you have started work, please submit your campus contact information (office phone, office mailing address, office location) to the online directory.

New employees must complete required employee training within 30 days of hire. You will receive an email from Employee Development and Learning (EDL) to your university email account with instructions on how to access and complete your training. For more information, please visit EDL.
