Criminal History Background Check (CHBC)
UND is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for all students, faculty, staff, and visitors, and to protecting its funds, property, and other assets. Well-informed decisions contribute to this effort. Background checks are verification of credentials and other information obtained about a prospective candidate, current employee, or volunteer, and are the first step in making a well-informed hiring decision.
At UND, such verification may include any or all of the following: criminal history check/national sex offender registry check, employment verification, license and/or certification verification, and/or academic credential verification.
The department that hired you will inform you whether you need a CHBC or not. If so, it will be emailed to you. Please complete the CHBC as quickly as possible so UND can proceed with the hiring process.
Completing the I-9
All new hires must complete the I-9. Form I-9 is used for verifying the identity and employment authorization of individuals hired for employment in the United States. All U.S. employers must ensure proper completion of Form I-9 for each individual they hire for employment in the United States. This includes citizens and noncitizens.
You MUST have original acceptable UNEXPIRED identification documents with you when you complete the I-9. Your employing department will tell you which location to go to when you complete your I-9. Copies of documents will not be accepted.
Shortly after notification of your offer acceptance, you will receive a series of emails with information to complete the on-boarding process as well as applying for your benefits. The emails will come from either UND.hr.mss@UND.edu or UND.payrollbenefits@UND.edu, so please watch for these important emails.
The first email you will receive will have your temporary ID and password along with a link you need to follow to enter your Personal Data Information.
A few days after completing your Personal Data, will you receive a second email that will allow you to claim your NDUS User Account (official electronic ID used for accessing email and other University systems).
After claiming your NDUS User Account, please log into New Employee Onboarding using your user ID and password.
