Once you've been offered employment by your department, please make sure to return the following forms to Human Resources and Payroll to activate your employment status. 

Human Resources

  • Form I-9 (Employment Eligibility Verification), completion no later than the first day of employment with supporting documents required within three days of employment. 
  • Social Security Card - For Payroll purposes, employees must be able to present a copy of his/her original social security card even if you choose not to use this card to complete your I-9. If you do not have a social security card, please locate the nearest Social Security office. Employees will NOT be paid until the social security card has been presented to Human Resources.
  • Legal Notices for all new employees

Return the Form I-9 and work documents to Human Resources located in Hardin Administration Bldg., Room 210.


  • New employees will need to set up tax information, direct deposit & Time Clock Plus set up.  Please send forms to the Payroll office located in Hardin Admin., Bldg., Room 209.

In addition to the information listed above, new employees will receive notification on the following:

  • Computer/Email access – once your employment is set up with Human Resources, your hiring department will send notification to IT (if required). Check your personal email for log in access.
  • Parking Hang Tag - if you are bringing a vehicle to campus, register and go online to pay for your reserved hang tag. Contact MSU Payroll if you plan on setting up a payroll deduction.    
  • MSU Mandatory Employee Training -  State Law (Chapter 21, Section 21 Texas Labor Code) requires all state employees be trained within 30 days of their start date and every two years after on EEO, Ethics, Sexual Harassment, Child Protection, and the Campus SaVE Act.
    These policies and trainings define your rights and duties as an employee. It also covers the state and federal laws that support them. 

Part time employees cannot work more than 19 hours a week.  Part time employees authorized by the hiring department to work over 19, must be limited to 29 hours per week and only for 60 days.  Beyond the 60 day window, per ACA, employment of 30+ hours per week leads to possible insurance eligibility with a full state contribution.  Upon an audit, there may be penalties of $2000 per employee in violation. Temporary employment of over 20 per week for more than 4.5 months will make the employee TRS eligible.  View the summary on work hours document to view work hour limit guidelines.
