First 90 Days at SMC

First 90 Days at SMC

Welcome to Saint Mary's College of California! We are glad that you have chosen to join our campus community. 


For New Hires

Completion of your new hire forms is needed to establish your SMC ID, email, and access to other systems such as Canvas. If you are a new faculty or staff member, please stop by The Office of Human Resources prior to your official start date to turn in your completed forms and establish your right to work in the U.S., in compliance with the rules and regulations of the Immigration Reform & Control Act of 1986 (please see the I-9 Form). 

Within three business days of their start, all new Saint Mary's employees must complete the Department of Homeland Security I-9 Form and provide documentation proving their identity and eligibility to work in the United States. If proof of eligibility is not provided by this time, the College will terminate employment.

For Staff Employees

Staff employees will receive an email with login credentials to our new HRIS, Paylocity, to complete their new hire documents. Despite filling out all paperwork online, you are still required to present your original I-9 documentation in person at The Office of Human Resources.

All Other Employees

Faculty, and all other employees not classified as staff, should complete the following forms and return via email,, or in person the following documentation:

**Note: The Motor Vehicle Authorization Form document applies to new hires in Campus Safety, Facilities or Athletics, and anyone else who will be driving as part of their role here at SMC. If your job requires you to drive as part of responsibilities, you should complete the MVR. 

For New Faculty

Completing all your paperwork well before the term begins will allow the College to prepare your supporting services in advance of your first class meeting (ID, email, class rosters, library access, and Canvas) and is strongly recommended. Also if a faculty member has worked for the College previously, they need only provide I-9 information if it has been more than three years since they last completed their I-9 form for the College or if their current I-9 form is no longer valid.


Prior to Official Start Date

Please visit the Office of Human Resources on the Garden Level of Filippi Admin Hall to turn in New Hire Docs, and show your original identification to complete the I-9 verification process.

Walk-ins are acceptable, but if you wish to schedule an appointment, please do so using this link. Scheduling an appointment is recommended to ensure that the HR staff will be available to assist you.
