New Faculty Paperwork

Welcome to Swarthmore College!

The Provost's Office would like to officially welcome you to Swarthmore College! On this page, you will find more detailed information that will allow you to both download your new hire paperwork forms and then securely upload these documents so that we can complete your information. 

To continue with this process, you will need to have done the following:

You will need to download the PDF documents that are listed below, complete them either electronically or in writing, then save them as a PDF.  All completed documents will need to be uploaded using MyDocuments.

  1. Post Employment Data Form [PR PED Form] Download this document and open in Adobe. Once there, choose 'E-Sign' at the top and then 'Fill & Sign Yourself'.
  2. Form I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification Form [HR I9].  Use this link to access the information on how to complete the form.  There are instructions on how to download to either print or complete electronically as well as information on which kinds of documents you can select from to allow for certifying your documents.  Please submit one PDF that will have both Section 1 completed AND include your supporting document (you may scan or take a picture to add to the PDF). NOTE: Section 2 will be completed by the I-9 certification administrator at the College.
  3. Local Tax Form [HR Active Employment]
  4. Workers’ Compensation Information [HR Active Employment]
  5. Direct Deposit Form [HR Direct Deposit]

NOTE: Since items 4 and 5 have the same document type of 'HR Active Employment', they may be combined into one PDF for uploading.  If you find that you uploaded a document with an error, you may upload a new document with the same document type. Once all five items have been completed, you will no longer have the ability to upload these documents.
