Instructor New Hire Onboarding

< Back to main page

Welcome to UCLA Extension!

We're thrilled to have you join our team.

To kickstart your journey, please complete the necessary new hire documents and schedule your virtual appointment through the steps outlined below. Once onboarded, we'll guide you through setting up your system access to ensure a smooth transition into your role as an instructor at UCLA Extension.

Steps to Getting Hired

Once you have accepted an offer for a teaching position, please schedule a new hire appointment with the Extension Human Resources team.

Complete the required new hire forms via DocuSign.

To initiate click on the link under "Hiring Forms," and complete all required fields:

  • Employment Application
  • Personal Data Form
  • Sexual Harassment Policy
  • Social Security Notice

Note: all areas requesting employee ID will be completed by an HR Representative.

Schedule your virtual new hire appointment with an EHR representative by visiting the link below. Please only schedule an appointment if our team has reached out to you.

Book time with your HR Representative:

You are required to complete Section 1 of the I-9 Form using the I-9 Tracker electronic system to verify your eligibility to work in the United States. In addition, you will need an authorized agent to inspect your documents during your virtual appointment.

The United States Department of Homeland Security will allow employees to use an Authorized Agent to complete the in-person physical inspection of the employee’s work authorization documents while meeting with us on Zoom.

The Authorized Agent must be over 18 years old and it is best practice to designate a non-family member (e.g., a neighbor, friend, colleague). We are currently making exceptions for family members and they may assist you.

Please note you and the Authorized Agent should physically be in the same room as you when meeting with HR via Zoom. HR will guide you through the process during the meeting.  We expect this meeting to be approximately 15 minutes.

When scheduling your virtual onboarding appointment, please include your Authorized Agent’s full legal name and email address where prompted.

Please complete your new hire documents and schedule your virtual onboarding appointment that includes your authorized agent in the next 1-2 weeks to avoid any delays in the hiring process.

You will receive an email from

Please be sure to complete section 1 before our meeting. All fields are required, including a Social Security Number (if applicable). Please note Section 1 will ask you to upload your documents, however, this is not a requirement at the time. 

The complete list of acceptable I-9 documents may be viewed here:

Please have the original document(s) ready for our meeting as the Authorized Agent will be viewing them in person with you and adding the information to section 2 electronically.

As a reminder, you and your authorized agent will be together physically on this call while meeting with Extension Human Resources via Zoom.

Before you meet with Extension Human Resources and your Authorized Agent be sure to complete section 1 of your 1-9. The Authorized Agent will receive an email from to complete Section 2 during our Zoom meeting.

No action is needed on the agent’s end until we all meet via Zoom to complete section 2 electronically.

Please note that the agent and the new hire should be in the same room since the agent will be inspecting the work authorization documents when meeting with Human Resources via Zoom.

Please have the email from the I-9 system handy during our meeting.

Note: We recommend having stable Wi-Fi.

Once you meet with your HR representative your hire will be processed. Once your hire has been completed, an HR Representative will email the new hire with the next steps.

The estimated timeline to process your new hire is 2 weeks.
