E-Verify

Tarleton State University participates in E-Verify. We will provide the Social Security Administration (SSA) and, if necessary, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), with information from each new employee’s Form I-9 to confirm work authorization. If the Government cannot confirm that you are authorized to work, Tarleton will provide you written instructions and an opportunity to contact DHS and/or the SSA before taking adverse action against you, including terminating your employment. E-Verify will not be used to pre-screen job applicants

Crime Information and Statistics

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act) requires higher education institutions to make public their campus security policies and release to the campus community crime data collected or reported.  In compliance with the Clery Act, Tarleton State University is required to distribute this information to all current and prospective employees and students.

The Annual Security Report and Fire Safety Report  contains information about university security rules/procedures and statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus; in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by Tarleton; and on public property within, or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus.  It also includes information regarding fire safety for student housing and fire statistics.
