Onboarding

Welcome to
Georgia Tech

Let's get started.

You'll be working at one of the nation's top research universities, distinguished by its commitment to improving the human condition through advanced science and technology. Our campus occupies 450 acres in the heart of the city of Atlanta, where more than 20,000 undergraduate and graduate students receive a focused, technologically based education.

As a newly hired employee, you will receive an email from the Equifax Compliance Center with instructions for completing an electronic onboarding process. Once the process is complete, you will be prompted to complete further action including the steps below. 

Make an Appointment

Once the Online New Hire Packet has been completed, you will receive an email with instructions to complete the I-9 and the Loyalty Oath. To start work at Georgia Tech, you need to complete the I-9 process. You will need to meet with GTHR in-person for this process. Plan at least 30 minutes. Walk-ins without an appointment are welcome but may have to wait. (This appt. may have been made on your behalf; check with your manager.)
