Planning to work on campus?
What you need to bring to campus:
If you are planning to work on campus, be prepared to bring physical Proof of Identification and Work Authorization documents to campus in order to work and be paid. By federal law, all students must show unexpired and original documents (no photocopies or pictures of the documents) to the Payroll Office in order to complete the I-9 process. Students cannot begin working until they have completed the I-9 process by showing these documents. Student Workers who fail to complete this step within the allotted time, may result in suspension or termination of employment. For a list of acceptable documents to bring to campus, review page three of the I-9 form.
