It is your responsibility to decide how you want to complete the W-4 Form and withhold taxes. You may wish to speak with whoever does your taxes in order to best determine how much you would expect to owe and how much you would therefore want to have withheld from your paychecks. Please use your permanent address when completing all tax forms.

I-9 Form

The U.S. government has strict requirements about the acceptability of documents for establishing work eligibility that vary with each person's circumstance. Page 3 of the I-9 Eligibility Form includes a full list of acceptable documents; for U.S. citizens, the most common documentation provided is either a U.S. passport or the combination of a driver's license plus a social security card. Eligibile documents must be unexpired, originals or a certified copy, photocopies are not acceptable. Please use your permanent address when completing your I-9 form.

I-9 Form Completion Instructions

Completing the form is only the first step, you will then need to report in person to HR staff with your ORIGINAL document(s) that prove you can legally work in the US. International students should report to the Human Resources Office to complete this form. Failure to present your documents BEFORE your first day of work will result in suspension and/or termination from your position.

Students are encouraged to have their paycheck deposited directly into their savings or checking account. This allows a student to be away from campus on payday and still receive his or her pay check. This also eliminates the possibility of lost or misplaced paychecks. Students interested in this option should print this form and submit their completed form to the Student Payroll/Human Resources Office located in the Cass Street building.


Schedule Form

Unless your supervisor provides you with a specific form, you can use this form to submit your class and other time commitments for consideration toward a work schedule.
