Process Changes

What about faculty?

The process for faculty attending just the August New Faculty Orientation does not change. If you previously registered faculty members for New Employee Orientation you should use the new process.

What about UVM Medical Group Physicians?

Please see the process detailed here.

How are CatCard and Parking Permits being handled?

Previously, CatCard and parking instructions were given to new employees when they came to orientation. In the new process, employees are instructed to do this on their first day of work, at their convenience. There are instructions and reminders on the employee webpage.

Where should I direct my employee to park ont the first day of work?

Managers are responsible for either sending a link to the printable parking passes or printing and mailing a pass to the new employee.
