Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Sonoma State University has transitioned to remote instruction for Spring 2021. Employees continue to work remotely in almost all departments. Email is the best way to communicate with our faculty and staff. Please see the SSU COVID-19 site for more information.

Step 1: New Hire Paperwork

You are required to sign new employee paperwork in HR if…

  • you are new to Sonoma State University, or
  • your previous employment at this campus ended more than three years ago, or
  • you held a Student Assistant position

Federal law and CSU policies require that your Employment Eligibility Verification forms (INS Form I-9) be completed within 3 business days of the date of hire (aka your start date). You will be required to show original unexpired documents that satisfy the requirement for the Form I-9.

Also if your position requires a degree, certificate  or license, please plan to show evidence at your sign up.
