Before You Start

Welcome to the Tribe!

We want your transition into our community to be as smooth as possible. Please review the following information to make your first day on the job a success!

Complete the I-9 Form

All employees of W&M must complete Section 1 of the I-9 form between the time an offer of employment is received and the end of the first day on the job. The I-9 form is only offered online, and can be found at using the employer code for William & Mary of 14621. If you have been offered a job and have not been provided the link to the online I-9 form, please contact your hiring manager or the Office of Human Resources.

On your first day you should bring with you the appropriate evidence of identity and employment eligibility. Your department will either complete Section 2 or send you to Human Resources to complete that section.
