In order to receive timely pay and proper access, you must follow these procedures prior to performing any work, without exception. 

Foreign National Tax Form

If you are a prospective international student employee, you will need to complete the Foreign National Tax Form process prior to beginning employment.  Once the form is received, the Tax Compliance Office will email the legal dates of employment.

Important! International new hires should not begin employment until the legal dates of employment are received and Form I-9/E-Verify requirements are complete. Also online: Foreign National Employment Resources

Form I-9

You will need to present original identification documentation to successfully complete Form I-9 in order to be employed. These documents must be physically ”in-hand”; photocopies will not be accepted.  Refer to the list of Form I-9 Acceptable Documents ( to ensure you are aware of the documents that will or will not be accepted.

Important! If you are unable to present acceptable I-9 documentation within three (3) days of starting your assignment, the assignment will be terminated and you will not be eligible to return to the assignment until acceptable documentation can be presented.

Start Date

You should not begin employment until all steps of the hiring workflow and onboarding process have been completed.  Start dates should be established to reflect the proper timing that will be needed to complete both the hiring and onboarding processes.   

Important! You should not perform work prior to the completion of all hiring workflow and onboarding process steps.  Not only does it cause confusion, but could pose potential federal law violations that are subject to large fines and criminal penalties, and in the case of international employees, may include deportation.
