Employment Eligibility

Unless restricted by certain visa status, all students are eligible for all on campus jobs, regardless of their financial status. International students (non-resident aliens) may not work off campus unless they have applied for and received work authorization form the United States government. (An F-1 visa does not give work authorization.) Off campus work study positions are available only to U.S. citizens on financial aid with a federal work study component.

Important Employment Documents

All students are required to complete an I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification form and a W-4 federal tax withholding form at the Student Employment Office. Some International students will complete an 8233 form through the Windstar FNIS online program.

The below PDF is a list of acceptable documents (mandated by the Department of Homeland Security) necessary to complete the I-9 form.  Please note that the documents you choose to provide must be unexpired and we must see them in their original form; photocopies cannot be accepted. Bring these documents with you when you come to the Student Employment Office to complete this paperwork; after you've been offered a employment but BEFORE you begin working. Students cannot work or be paid until this paperwork has been completed; you will receive a 'blue card' once you are eligible to work on campus.
