New Employee Orientation (NEO)


Welcome to Florida Gulf Coast University!

All new FGCU employees are required to attend a New Employee Orientation (NEO) when they begin employment.

NEO is designed to give you the necessary tools and resources for your career journey at FGCU. The purpose of our NEO is to help you understand FGCU’s culture, vision, mission, and core values, as well as providing valuable information to ensure successful employment at the university.

FGCU utilizes electronic new hire paperwork forms to complete the hiring process. External applicants who are selected as finalists will be asked to complete the appropriate electronic new hire paperwork forms.  Human Resources will email the electronic new hire paperwork to the new employee at the email listed in their application.  The electronic new hire paperwork should be completed prior to the start date to expedite the hire process.

In addition, new employees will be required to print (single-sided) and complete the four forms in the New Employee Orientation Packet (I-9, Loyalty Oath, FRS Certification, Direct Deposit).

New Employee Orientation Packet

Pursuant to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service, all new employees are required to complete and submit the Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I-9) and provide proof of eligibility to work in the United States of America.  New employees will need to bring the New Employee Orientation Packet, their forms of identification for the I-9 Form, and a voided check or bank form to include with their Direct Deposit Form.
