New Employee Toolbox

On behalf of Dr. Joseph Morgan, President of Morehead State University (MSU) and the Office of Human Resources, welcome to MSU. We look forward to seeing you on your first day of employment.

We use an electronic onboarding system for full-time new hires. This electronic system will provide you with all the information you need for your first day of employment.

All employees of MSU must have a background investigation completed. The background verification request and consent is electronic and you will receive an email from HireRight (noreply@hireright.com).  Please complete that request when it is received.

Part-Time/Temporary Employees will find helpful information below.
