Hiring and Onboarding


New hires to the College, including student employees and graduate assistants, are not legally authorized to begin working until new hire paperwork is completed.

New employees need to pass a background check, if applicable , and meet with the College HR Liaison to provide original documentation verifying identity and employment authorization before beginning work.

Please allow a minimum of 1-2 weeks to complete these steps, as well as time to get through the HR Oracle System approval process.
