Any faculty member, full-time staff member, or graduate assistant whose information has been entered into the RIAS III payroll system ("on-boarded") and approved by University Human Resources can create an account on RCI. If the faculty/staff member needs an RCI account before the entry is approved, and the person is re-activating a former NetID (i.e., has been at Rutgers before), then the departmental payroll person can apply for an emergency NetID.
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 in RIAS:
- It is recommended that new employees be on-boarded as soon as possible and well in advance of their start date. On-boarding can be performed several months in advance of the start date.
- 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 an offer letter signed both by the unit and by the new employee.
- The I9 may be completed several months in advance of an employee's start date and MUST be completed within 3 days of the employee's first day of work. HR will approve a hire request before the I9 is completed.
An emergency NetID can be temporarily used just as a NetID to access many of the electronic services available to you at Rutgers.
