Additional Information Regarding Employee Processing

WVU Shared Services Center provides in-person processing support at several of our open locations on campus.  In order to reduce wait times, we encourage making an appointment at one of these locations. Please contact us by telephone at 304-293-6006 or email at Shared to schedule an appointment. 

Don't forget that you need to bring the required documentation or you won't be able to process (details on required documentation below in "Items Needed for Processing" section on this page). Remote processing is also still an option. If you prefer to process remotely, please let us know by phone or email. We look forward to helping you as you begin employment at WVU!
