Annual Mandatory Training

In accordance with Texas Labor Code 21.010, all University employees, including faculty, staff, student workers and temporary employees paid through the University payroll system are required to complete annual mandatory training, which includes the following:

  1. Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO)
  2. Code of Ethics
  3. Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA)
  4. Fraud Awareness
  5. Secure Our Systems
  6. Finance trainings as required by the employee's position and/or fiscal responsibilities
  7. External Consulting and Related Party Disclosure, for employees who meet at least one of the following criteria:
    • ​Full-time faculty
    • ​Exempt (salaried) employees
    • ​​Non-exempt (bi-weekly) employees with purchasing responsibilities​

Employees may also be required to complete additional training based on their role at the University, especially those having financial accountability or administrative responsibility in PeopleSoft.  Employees should consult with their supervisor regarding any additional training required of their position and/or security access needed to complete this training. 

Employees are sent an email notification once a year with instructions on how to complete this training. 

In accordance with UH System Administrative Memorandum 02.A.26, Employee Development and Training, it is the responsibility of each employee to complete annual mandatory training. Employees who do not complete annual mandatory training by the published deadline will not have met their job expectations and will, therefore, not be eligible for merit increases. Supervisors are responsible for monitoring their employees' training performance.​

New Hire Mandatory Training

All new or returning University employees (including faculty, staff, student workers, and temporary employees paid through the University payroll system) are required to complete New Hire Mandatory Training within the first 30 days of employment.  This training includes the following courses:

  1. Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO)
  2. Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA)
  3. Ethics & Fraud
  4. Secure Our Systems

This training is provided through the Training Access Portal (TAP), which may be accessed by clicking here​ or visiting the Mandatory Training page​.   

Employees who fail to complete the new hire mandatory training within the first 30 days of employment will not have met their job expectations and will, therefore, not be eligible for merit increases, and may be subject to disciplinary action.
