Memorandum of Understanding

These are basic agreements you make with the University regarding the nature of your employment.

Form I-9

Electronic W-2 Authorization

This form allows Baylor to withhold the correct federal income tax from your pay.

Conflict of Interest Policy and Statement

Please review this important university policy. All faculty and staff are required to complete the statement annually. You will be able to do so after you are assigned your BU ID number.

Payroll Deduction Authorization

For your convenience, your Baylor ID card can be used to charge purchases for various university services (food, immunizations at the health center, etc.). This form gives us permission to deduct those charges from your pay. NOTE: Most campus dining facilities only accept the BU ID card; no cash or checks.

Request for Deposit of Payroll Earnings

The purpose of this form is to gather the information needed to deposit your paycheck directly into your bank account. Baylor uses direct deposit as its primary means of payment.

Self-identification Forms

Baylor University is subject to certain governmental recordkeeping and reporting requirements for the administration of civil rights laws and regulations. In order to comply with these laws, we invite employees to voluntarily self-identify their race, ethnicity, disability and veteran category.

Prior University Work Experience

To determine whether you are eligible for University contributions to your retirement account more quickly, provide details of previous work experience as faculty or staff at a college or university.
