On Your First Day

Verify your I-9

Bring the I-9 verification documents you received by email to Tufts Support Services in person by the third business day after your hire date so you can be added to payroll. There are TSS offices on all four Tufts campuses.

This tip sheet provides additional information about completing your I-9 form online.

Set Up Your Tufts Username and Password

Your Tufts Username and Tufts Password are the gateway to a wide range of technology services and resources. These credentials will be assigned to you by Tufts Technology Services on or before your start date.

Set Up Your Computer and Phone/Voicemail

Your manager coordinated with Tufts Technology Services to have a computer and phone (with voicemail) set up for you on your first day of work. If you do not have access to this or other technology needed for your job, talk to your manager.
