Student employees must complete tax forms (W-4 Withholding Allowance Certificates) and proof of work eligibility (I-9) before beginning work as an Albion College Student Employee. This can only be completed once you have been hired.

You will be contacted by Student Employment to attend orientation and complete the required paperwork.

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.

Please use your permanent address when completing your I-9 form.

You will need to bring your ORIGINAL document(s) that prove you can legally work in the US with you to orientation. Failure to present your documents BEFORE your first day of work will result in suspension and/or termination from your position.

Direct Deposit

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 their paycheck. This also eliminates the possibility of lost or misplaced paychecks.

To prevent fraud, direct deposit forms are available by request only (via email [email protected] or in-person from the Human Resources Office located on the 2nd floor of Ferguson. A voided check or other verification of Routing and Account numbers must accompany the Direct Deposit form.
