Weeks before the semester starts, speak to your advisor or professor you work with and ask if you are going to be appointed as an RA for the next semester.

Appointments are done using Docusign which requires that you sign the electronic paperwork asap when you receive an email.

If you have never worked before as an RA or if you have not shown your ID to HR in a year or more, you are required to show HR Form I9 acceptable documents (eg passport) (https://www.uscis.gov/i-9). IMPORTANT: You cannot start work nor will your appointment be complete until you do this.

Mandatory Orientation - You are required to complete the RPA campus orientation.

Social Security Number - If you do not have a Social Security Number, you will be required to obtain one within 30 days of your hire date.
