Requirements Timeline

Before you start

  • Completing your I-9 is required before we can set up your Western accounts and before you can work. If you are able to do this 10 days before your start date, it will make it easier for us to have you ready to go on day 1. Stop by HR (Humanities Room 203) during our office hours (Mon-Fri, 8am-5pm) to complete your I-9 in person or email HR@wwu.edu to schedule an appointment to complete your I-9 remotely.
  • All employees must comply with our Immunization policies, including COVID vaccination by time of hire and Proof of Rubeola Measles Immunity within 60-days of hire. Please reach out to HR@wwu.edu if you need information regarding medical or religious exemption and applicable accommodations.
