New Faculty and Staff

Before receiving an R-Card, all requesters must provide a valid government-issued photo identification card to prove the requesters identification. There are no exceptions to this rule. Examples of a government-issued ID are listed below.

  • State-issued driver’s license
  • State-issued identification card

Each new faculty and staff member must also present an orange faculty/staff R-Card request form. You may obtain this form from the Human Resources department, which proves that all required paperwork for employment has been completed.
