Welcome to the Wolfpack!

Onboarding Center Operations

We understand that each employee has different needs and encourage you to reach out to us at 919-513-1278 or onboardingcenter@ncsu.edu to determine what will work best for each employee.

*Note: Supplier/vendor onboarding is managed through the Supplier Center with Procurement & Business Services, not the Onboarding Center. They can be reached at supplier_onboarding@ncsu.edu or 919-515-2171.

Onboarding Appointments: We offer in-person one-on-one appointments and virtual appointments via Zoom. During these appointments, we will walk new employees/rehires through onboarding tasks. We continue to reach out to new employees to schedule appointments and copy the supervisor/PS initiator on the confirmation emails. Employees who choose to have a virtual appointment will need access to a computer with an internet connection and we ask supervisors to be flexible in allowing employees to have access to a computer to complete these appointments.

I-9 completion: The I-9 Center, located in room 101 of the Administrative Services II (2711 Sullivan Drive), is open Monday – Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Walk-ins welcome. If you wish to make an appointment, email i9questions@ncsu.edu. The Onboarding Center staff is also available in the Onboarding Center Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. to complete I-9s for walk-ins.

Employee ID Cards: Employees who select an in-person onboarding appointment will receive their ID during their appointment. Employees who choose virtual onboarding appointments can get their Wolfpack OneCard at the Onboarding Center in Joyner Visitor Center or at the Wolfpack One Card office in Talley Student Union. Both locations are open for walk-ins Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
