Does Your New Hire Need a NetID?

You can help your new hires obtain timely access to IT resources by completing the IRIS Transaction: ZPHRRECORD000 – Record Pending Employee with your department’s Pending Employee position. Due to automated processes that run to create accounts, OIT recommends completing the IRIS transaction at least 3 business days before the employee starts work. Once processed, new employees will be assigned a NetID and email account and they can gain access to several other IT resources, such as software, library databases, MyIRIS Employee Self-Service, and more.

If you find yourself in a bind and require a NetID for a new employee sooner than the typical cycle allows, submit a request online using this NetID Account Requests & Updates Form. Please note that this account will have limited access to UT resources until the new employee’s information has traversed the various systems. Requests for new NetIDs are typically processed within one business day.

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is encouraged for all new employees when they set up their initial NetID password; however, it is not be required until their status changes from Pending to Active.
