ORIENTATION/TRAINING CHECKLIST:  ALL newly hired GA's (GTA, GRA, GAA) should complete and submit this form to their GA supervisors during their first week of work as graduate assistants.

NEW HIRE PAPERWORK SESSION:  (Returning GA's do not need to attend!)
In order to be placed on APSU's payroll and receive your stipend, you must attend a session to complete hiring paperwork.  Due to space limitations, advance registration is required.  Be sure to bring your Social Security card and original documents for completion of the Form I-9 (see page 3 for acceptable documents) with you to the session.  International students should only register for one of the designated sessions offered during the week of August 20th and are not required to bring Social Security cards or other documentation, as they will complete the Form I-9 at a later date.  If you have registered and need to change to a different session, please register for the new session and send an email to so your name can be removed from the original roster.
