Welcome to Southern Cross University

Your induction is the starting point in the process of becoming familiar with, and settling into, University life.

There are two elements to your induction:

  • Corporate induction – A compulsory online module for all new staff, made up of two stages. You may choose to complete Stage 1 prior to your commencement or on your first day. To complete prior to your commencement you will be provided with login details either via your employment contract or the Online Onboarding process; and
  • Work unit induction (arranged by your supervisor) to occur on your first day.

1. Corporate Induction

Access the University’s Corporate Induction using the link at the bottom of this webpage and the login details provided in your employment contract or via the Online Onboarding process.

After you commence and have been given access to the University's systems, you will also be able to access the Corporate Induction from MySCU.

As you settle into your new role, I encourage you to be an active participant in your induction - investigate, ask questions, introduce yourself to other employees, explore your new environment and ask for help if needed. The link to the Corporate Induction is below:

Enjoy your time at Southern Cross University.

2. Work unit induction

As part of your work unit specific induction program, you will be meeting with your supervisor or manager on your first day. They will arrange for you to meet your team and undertake an orientation of your work space and building.

You will be informed about your work unit's workplace health and safety matters. This will include understanding the emergency evacuation procedures and receiving information about your nominated emergency evacuation warden, health and safety representative and first aid officer. A Work Unit WHS checklist will be used for this process. Both you and the person performing your induction are required to sign the completed checklist.

An Induction checklist template will be tailored to your appointment and will also guide your induction and orientation during your first few weeks. You will have a proactive role in this process.
