Personnel Information and Forms

About Your Job: Information for Psychology Department Employees

Payroll Signup

The first step in the hiring process is the completion of payroll sign-up forms. This must be done well in advance of your actual start date. If you haven’t already done so, you should contact the Department Office Manager at (352) 273-2123, to arrange to have the appropriate forms completed. You will need your social security card and your drivers’ license. Please note that your name will be entered into UF’s computer system exactly as it appears on your social security card. If you don’t have a social security card, you should go to the local Social Security Office to request a replacement card. They will give you a receipt which can be used in lieu of the permanent card for purposes of payroll signup, but you will need to provide a copy of the permanent card when you get it. When your payroll information gets processed into UF’s payroll system, an “assignment” will be created for you. This is sort of a file that identifies who you are, where you work, your job title, salary and demographic information. Your paycheck is generated based on this assignment.

Getting a Gatorlink Account

If you haven’t already done so, you must establish a GatorLink email account. GatorLink is an individual’s computer network identity at the University of Florida. Every applicant, student, faculty and staff member is expected to have a GatorLink username and password. Please go to for more information, to create a new account, or to modify an existing account.

UF ID Card

Upon employment or affiliation with the Department, you are eligible to obtain a Gator1 Card (UF ID Card) at the ID Office in the Reitz Union. Please contact David Fowler at 273-2123 or by email at to obtain authorization. A Gator1 Card costs $15. For more information on ID Cards, please visit:

Parking on Campus

Please note that parking is somewhat difficult at UF. If your park your vehicle on campus during regular business hours, you must have the appropriate decal to park in a particular lot. For example, if you have a Commuter decal, you must park in a lot that is designated “Commuter.” If you do not follow these parking guidelines, you will almost certainly get a parking ticket. Please note that UF students, faculty, and employees can ride any RTS bus fare-free when they present a valid UF ID card. You may find that in many cases it is more convenient to utilize the free bus service or to utilize other forms of transportation than it is to drive a vehicle on campus.
