Verification of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Employment

We regret that we are unable to provide this information over the telephone.

Current Employees

All current university employees, including student employees, must use the University of Illinois Online Employment Verification System. By doing so, vendors such as banks, mortgage lenders, and government approved housing can access your employment information immediately and process your loan application or housing request much faster. Requests for information other than salary, dates, percentage of appointment, or title (e.g., performance, job duties or attendance) should be directed to the unit(s) in which the employee was affiliated.
