New Employee Orientation

New Employee Orientation

Welcome to the Marine Sciences Department!

All newly hired employees will have to complete required employment orientation within the UGA Onboarding System. In addition to multiple emails from UGA Human Resources regarding employment at UGA, new hires will also receive a system-generated email from Onboarding with instructions for accessing the secure Onboarding System. The following three forms need to be completed within OneUSG Connect: Direct Deposit Enrollment, State of Georgia Withholding Certificate (G-4), and Federal Withholding Certificate (W-4). If the new hire is a visa holder, the G-4 and W-4 forms may be replaced with UGA's International Tax Form, which is now sent via email from Glacier. Note that these tax forms and I-9 verification are due within three days of the new hire’s start date. I-9 verification can be done within the Marine Sciences Business Office or UGA Human Resources.
