Welcome to Georgia State University. This page is dedicated to helping you understand what you need to do to be set up on the payroll system.
As a new employee, you must complete a new hire packet and I-9 verification before your first day of employment or it will delay your first paycheck, access to the university computer systems and university ID cards. You may submit forms up to 30 days before starting employment.
Note: The Department of Homeland Security requires the I-9 to be received within three days of starting employment.
