SHSU Employee Onboarding Checklist

The Welcome & Benefits Orientation and Online Banner General Navigation sessions are required of all New Employees*.  The Hiring Managers will determine which of the remaining Banner sessions are required, based on the new employee’s job functions, and use the Training Calendar to register for all needed sessions. Please remember, Banner access will be granted after attending the corresponding training.

*     Please contact Human Resources if you have questions regarding required attendance.
