Important “To Do” List

  • Sign and return your employment contract to the Office of Human Resources, Sutton Hall, Room G-8 before the first day of classes. You must complete and return the following payroll paperwork to the Office of Human Resources along with your Social Security card and a photo ID by the first day of classes:
    • IUP Personal Data Summary
    • I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification Form
    • W-4 Tax Withholding Form (Federal Taxes)
    • Earned Income (Wage) Tax Questionnaire (Local Taxes)
    • Pay Option Election Form (Tenure-Track Faculty)

These forms along with additional information are available on the Office of Human Resources website. If you are eligible for benefits, you will be notified in writing by the Office of Human Resources. Those eligible for benefits will have 30 days from the start date of their contract to make benefit decisions and submit enrollment paperwork. In most cases, benefits will be effective the day your appointment begins. Additional benefits information is included with your appointment letter.

  • Check with your department office to see if there is important information and/or documents waiting for you. You should contact your chair or department representative early in the summer for copies of the syllabi of record for each course you are assigned to teach. Each department may have additional welcoming/orientation materials for you.
  • Ask your department chair or department secretary or administrative assistant about computer equipment and keys for your use. An e-mail account is created for you when Human Resources processes your appointment forms and you make the visit to HR with your photo ID and Social Security card. Each college has a technology manager who can answer questions about e-mail and other technology problems. The IT Support Services’ website offers on-line documentation for the academic community.
  • Get your I-Card at the I-Card Office, Hadley Union Building. We recommend you do this before students arrive on campus, as the line will be very long! Your I-Card may need to be activated at the IUP Libraries in order to use some of their services. Consider whether to pay the student activities fee, which entitles you to take advantage of cultural and recreational programs, activities, and facilities offered by the Student Cooperative Association at discounted prices.
  • Register your vehicle at the Campus Police Office, located in University Towers, to receive a faculty parking tag allowing you to park in marked faculty parking spaces on campus. You must apply on line through MyIUP, (after logging in, click on the employee tab, on-line parking account). The permit will be mailed to you.
