Human Resources (HR)
Get Set Up as New Hire
Once HR has received all your new hire documents, they will:
- Send Information Technology the new hire form to grant you access to email. This will take 24-48 hours.
- HR will then send you instructions on how to set up a Paychex account.
- Your Adjunct Faculty contract will be prepared and sent to you by either Cynthia Antonuccio (TUG and Grad) or Temma Knight (Professional Studies).
IT is located behind Smith Hall in the IT Building, #14
Access the Network
Once HR has communicated your hiring information to IT, IT will set you up with network permissions and provide you with your account information and login credentials.
For assistance, you will need to contact IT for your login credentials.
Your VU e-mail should always serve as your primary mailbox for communicating with students. Students are also required to use their VU e-mail to communicate with staff and faculty.
Obtain an ID card
You will need to go to IT to get an ID card. IT is open Monday-Thursday from 8:00 – 7:00 pm and Fridays from 8:00 -5:00 pm. If you let them know ahead of time, someone can be available after 5:00 pm to take your picture and get you your card.
Reset Your Password
Password Reset (also known as SSRPM)
Once enrolled in SSRPM you can change your password or create a new password if you’ve forgotten it. You can only use this service with an active password. Save yourself time and issues – Do not let your password expire. IT does not store passwords. If needed, IT can retrieve your username and reset your password by calling the IT Helpdesk 714-619-6500.
Connect to MyVU
Student Information Systems (SIS) Interface (also known as MyVU)
IT sets up your account authentication. They will set you up in MyVU to access your individual information and class rosters. You will enter your final grades in MyVU.
