To All Preparers and Approvers:
We have been notified by the Office of Information Technology (OIT) that a number of emails they have sent to new hires giving them their NetID information are being returned to the OIT mailbox as undeliverable. HCM and OIT have found that the email addresses entered in Template-Based Hire are non-existent. Please look out for email addresses identified as type “home” with an @Rutgers.edu or @scarletmail.rutgers.edu. These are fake email addresses. If your new hire does not have a personal email address, please have them go to Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail, or any other web email service and create a real personal email address to give to you so that you can complete the Template-Based Hire and they can get the email from OIT.
Please direct new hires, who do not get the email from OIT with their netid information, to https://netid.rutgers.edu. This web page will direct them how to retrieve and activate their NetID and obtain a real university business email. Assistance is available at Campus Computing Help Desk on each campus.
