    • Forwarding address for end-of-the-year W-2 mail outs; and

    • Meet with your department to complete "Section A" (departmental clearance) and initial where applicable for verification.

  3. Complete the online Faculty Exit Survey.
  4. Complete and print the Technology Access Form.
  5. Human Resources will schedule an exit interview with you on or before your last day of employment. During this time, HR will discuss insurance conversion, your Baylor email account and the retirement income plan. If you do not receive an invitation for the exit interview, contact Human Resources by calling 254-710-2000.
  6. Additional actions required by the separating employee prior to last day of employment:
    • Return library books to the appropriate University Libraries;
    • Pay or arrange to pay any indebtedness owed to the University or related entity;
    • Remove any personal or private files from your computer; and
    • Coordinate separation with Student Financial Aid Office if you, your spouse and/or your dependents are receiving tuition remission benefits.

  7. Information on Email accounts:
    • Faculty voluntarily separating from the University will retain your faculty email for approximately eight (8) months after your last day of employment. These accounts are deleted after the eight month time period (without prior notification) unless the individual re-affiliates with Baylor through employment or school enrollment.
    • Individuals involuntarily separated from the University will lose access immediately.
    • Email accounts for retirees currently remain active for an indefinite period.
    • Baylor currently provides former students an email account (BearID@alumni.baylor.edu) that allows them to continue to show their Baylor affiliation through their email address. If you meet the established level for provisioning of alumni accounts (see below), contact the helpdesk at 710-4357 or email, helpdesk@baylor.edu, to learn more on how to accessing this account.
