Welcome to Teachers College. The first few days of work can seem overwhelming. You may only know the people you interviewed with, and you’re stepping into a new team with it's own unique dynamics and culture. The campus is sprawled across several buildings whose floors intersect, and if you can’t decide on where to grab a bite to eat, our Grace Dodge Dining Hall is a great option!
As you begin to navigate your way around TC and your new role, we would like to point out a few important steps that are necessary to complete your onboarding, and to assist you in navigating your first day as a TC Employee.
If you have not already, complete Section 1 of the I-9 Form online, through an email sent by our I-9 system, Tracker. You must also present your employment authorization documents in person in the HR office to complete Section 2 of the I-9 Form within three days of employment.
Your Teachers College Identification Card is required for campus access. The University ID Card is your passport to Teachers College and Columbia University. To obtain your TC ID card, please visit the Office of Card Services website or contact them at 212-678-3098. The Office is located in Whittier Hall Suite 1B.
The TC ID provides faculty and staff of Teachers College and affiliated institutions with access and borrowing privileges at Teachers College Gottesman Libraries and Columbia University Libraries, as well as access to Columbia University's free shuttle buses.
There is a $20 fee for a replacement card to be issued.
