Bronco ID Numbers and Computer Access

Due to the expedited nature of the hire, Temporary Emergency employees will not have Bronco ID numbers upon hire (unless they have been previously assigned one by the University). Payroll generates the Bronco ID number which takes five working days from the effective date of employment. Please contact your department's Payroll technician to retrieve the employee's Bronco ID number.

Once the employee has been assigned a Bronco ID, the Help Desk will generate a User Name and Password for computer access. Please call the Help Desk to obtain this information.
