New University Employees

Welcome to the University of Iowa!

As you begin your employment journey, you will be required to complete the federal Form I-9 within three business days of your first day at work. Your HR representative will reach out to you to coordinate this process. Here is a list of Form I-9 acceptable documents.

Thank you for your cooperation. We are excited to have you join the university community.

For more information or assistance please contact:

University HR and Supervisors

The UI uses I-9 Express to complete and submit I-9s and E-Verify, when required. Paper copies of Form I-9 are not acceptable.

To access I-9 Express:

  • Login to Employee Self-Service.
  • Select "Human Resources Systems" > "I-9 Express"
  • Instructions within I-9 Express will guide you through the I-9 process.

For questions about Form I-9, please consult the USCIS Handbook for Employers.

Please Note: Federal law requires that an employee not work more than three days until and unless a completed I-9 form is on file.

To request access to the I-9 Resources SharePoint for FAQs and resources, please email
