Requesting Emergency NetID

OIT will provide Emergency NetIDs to employees with Social Security Numbers who need access to electronic services to perform their assigned duties and whose on-boarding process has been delayed. A departmental Human Resources representative or a hiring authority may use the link at the bottom of this page to request Emergency NetID for such cases.

Please note the following before submitting a request:

  • Please do everything possible to complete the HR on-boarding process in RIAS before requesting emergency assistance.
  • It is expected that you will work with the department and/or HR to resolve any outstanding issues within 30 days.
  • Emergency NetID process cannot accommodate new employees that do not yet have a Social Security Number (SSN).
  • Please verify the exact spelling of the new employee's first name, last name, and personal email address, as well as SSN and date of birth. Errors and inaccurate information may lead to data conflicts and consistency problems when on-boarding is completed in RIAS.

Regarding on-boarding of new employees in legacy Rutgers or legacy UMDNJ positions:

  • It is recommended that new employees be on-boarded as soon as possible and well in advance of their start date in order to ensure access to electronic systems at the university on the employee’s first day of employment.
  • HR can only approve a request to hire after all the necessary data has been submitted. This includes, but is not limited to, first name, last name, date of birth, SSN, and a signed offer letter. Please note that different payroll systems for legacy Rutgers and legacy UMDNJ may have different data requirements to complete a new employee’s record in the system.
  • Section I of the federal I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification Process may be completed in advance of an employee's start date, but MUST be completed by the end of the employee’s first day of employment. Section II of the I-9 process, in which employees present appropriate documentation to verify their identity, MUST be completed within 3 days of the employee's first day of work. For more information about the I-9 process, please visit, or for a list of acceptable documents to complete Section II of the I-9 process, visit
