New Employee Information

Welcome to Bowling Green State University!  As a new Falcon, you have been invited to attend new hire orientation.  To begin your onboarding process, please print the forms below, complete them, and bring them to your scheduled session along with two of the listed types of identification from the I-9 form instructions.  If you plan to enroll a spouse or dependent child(ren) for insurance benefits, you will also need to bring additional documentation types such as a marriage certificate, birth certificates/adoption paperwork, etc. as proof of dependency.

If you are a new full-time employee, you will also be offered the opportunity to enroll for any insurance benefits that you are eligible for.  Please review the benefit/compensation section for detailed plan, eligibility, and cost information.

Reminder: Employee benefit plan enrollments have a deadline of 30 days from your date of hire.  Enrollment is completed online in the myBGSU portal.  Retirement plan enrollments have a deadline of 120 days from your date of hire.  Retirement elections are completed by submitting the Retirement Plan Election Form to Human Resources.
