All employees (first-time or re-employed) must complete onboarding forms online and present their I-9 documentation at New Employee Registration (NER) by their first day of work.

Before attending NER, look at the NER Infomation SheetAdobe Acrobat Document for information about:

  • what I-9 documents to bring
  • a map to the office
  • contact information
  • business hours

If you are not located on the Columbia Campus but are near another UM Campus, use the New Employee Registration Contact List to schedule an appointment with a NER representative.

NER is not the same as New Employee Orientation (NEO). Orientation is for new, benefit-eligible employees. The focus of NEO is to present an overview of HR and benefit information.
