Onboarding Steps

Step 1: New Hire Paperwork

Once you have completed your online application, please complete all of the New Hire Paperwork via the USF Human Resources website. Scroll down to the Paperwork section for all new employee forms.

-OR-

You will automatically be sent new hire paperwork from HR. If you would like to go ahead and complete paperwork, you may download it from the link above. You may disregard the automatic e-mail if you have already submitted your paperwork.

When you have submitted all of your paperwork to HR, please send an email stating that your new hire paperwork is complete to: Kelsee Levey at kllevey@usfca.edu.

 

Step 2: Create your myUSF Account

Most university business is handled online, so you will need to set up your myUSF account as soon as possible. You must be able to log into your myUSF account in order to view your class roster, access official University e-mail, submit grades, and many other functions.

Once your HR paperwork is complete and processed, you will be notified from your program team of your USF e-mail and username. With your username in hand, follow these steps to get started.

  • Go to myUSF
  • To activate your password, call the ITS Help Desk at (415) 422-6668 or visit them in person (hours and locations).

 

Step 3: Faculty Access, ID, & Profile Information

Systems Access

Even though you may already have a myUSF account and email because you are already affiliated with the University in another role, you may still need to have access granted to you for additional systems. If you are both a graduate student and an adjunct faculty member, be sure to let your program staff know so they can assist you with your new systems role.

Faculty ID Card

  • All USF faculty are issued a university photo ID called the USF One Card, and clinical nursing faculty are issued a Nursing Faculty Badge. As a current USF faculty, you may use your USF One Card to unlock doors and gain entrance into University buildings and facilities. The Nursing Faculty Badge is worn during your clinical rotations to identify you as USF Faculty while working on a hospital unit. Please visit the One Card and campus security systems website at www.usfca.edu/one-card for more information.
  • Find a recent color photograph of yourself (your entire head and shoulders must be visible and you should be facing directly towards the camera), then save it as a JPG or JPEG file.
  • Log onto Online ID Express: Log onto the Online ID Express website with your USF Connect username and password. Under Submit ID Photo Click Browse and find your photograph. Upload and Submit it. (For more complete instructions, please visit OneCard's website.
