Faculty with Teaching Responsibilities

NOTE: The ability to sign up for training and access resources requires that you have your USC net ID and your 10-digit employee number. Those are provided after you have submitted your signed offer letter and after you have been set up in payroll.

To get your USC net ID and your 10-digit employee number, go to “first log-in“.
