Human Resources

Check-in with HR to make sure all of your paperwork has been completed and in your file prior to starting work.  All paperwork must be completed by early August in order to receive your transition stipend on August 30th.  You may need to show your ID card and social security card.  Also, request your PLU ID# if you don’t have it already.  You will NOT be able to complete some of the tasks below without being in the “system” and having a PLU ID number.  Human Resources phone number is 253-535-7185.

PLU ID Card

Go to the Concierge desk in the University Center and have your ID card made.  Your ID Card is used to check out books at the library and is also a Swipe Card for those classrooms that require swipe card access.

Access (Keys/Swipe Card)

The Designated Office Access Requestor (DOAR), usually your Academic Assistant, will order your key(s) and you will be notified when they are available.  Pick up your key(s) at the Campus Concierge in the University Center; you will need to show your PLU ID card.  If you are teaching or have your office in a building that uses the swipe card system, it will be activated automatically.

Email Address and Password for Computers

Go online to www.plu.edu/myepass and complete the form and submit it.  If you experience any problems with the form contact Computing & Telecommunications Services (CATS) at 253-535-7525 for assistance.  Check to make sure your office computer is operating properly and that it is connected to the appropriate printer prior to classes starting.

Textbook Ordering

The Textbook Adoption Orders can be made by using an online software system at: http://plu.verbacollect.com/session/new.  Click on the “Help! I lost/don’t have a password” link to create your login information.  You will need your PLU email address before doing this.  If you have any questions, please contact the Garfield Book Company textbook buyer, Brianne Sorensen (253-535-7666 or by email at sorensbk@plu.edu).
