If you are a new employee or haven't worked at Ohio University in 12 months, THEN YOU NEED TO FILL OUT PAPER WORK PRIOR TO YOUR FIRST CLASS MEETING. You will not have access to email or Blackboard until your paperwork has been processed by Payroll. Please see the attached link for items required to complete your I9, you should also bring your banking information to sign up for direct deposit.
Please note that all documents must be current.  We cannot accepted any documents that are expired or laminated.



Contracts are now processed online and it is no longer necessary for instructors to sign any contracts. If a class is full, and therefore, does not have to be prorated, the instructor's contract will be processed in the system the first week of class.

Prorated contracts will be processed after the last day to add or drop a class. Once contracts have been processed by the Payroll office in Athens (usually 15 days before the next schedule pay date), faculty members will receive an e-mail confirmation from that office notifying them of the amount of the contract and the expected pay dates for the semester.

If there are any questions concerning the amount of the contract or pay dates, please contact our office immediately and do not reply to the e-mail from the Payroll office.





If you are currently a faculty member on a Presidential contract, and are receiving your pay checks over nine months (October 1 – June 1), you have the option of receiving your checks over twelve months (October 1 through September 1). Forms are available in the Finance Office and must be returned to the Finance Office prior to August 15th for the new academic year.
