K-State eID Registration and Verification Process

For a new employee, the process for creating a K-State eID and authenticating/verifying with K-State has changed. It is no longer necessary for the new employee to be hired in HRIS to authenticate/verify. They may now verify immediately after creating their eID and password using either their Wildcat ID Number (WID) located on their Wildcat Card or social security number. For those completing this process, it will no longer be necessary to grant special privileges to enable e-mail.

Please ignore this process if the new employee is a K-State student or has been a student and/or an employee in the past, there is no need for them to register and verify again.

On-Line Leave Request Forms

All supervisors need to ensure that either an electronic copy or a printed copy of an APPROVED Leave Request is provided to the department timekeeper. The on-line Leave Request Forms have been revised and now include a box at the bottom of each form for the department timekeeper's e-mail address.
