Employment Eligibility Verification

All Work-Study and Non-Work-Study students who wish to work on campus must provide proof that they are eligible to work in the United States. To do so students must complete a Federal Employment Eligibility Verification Form, also referred to as an I-9. Entering students are asked to bring appropriate documentation on Arrival Day to complete the form. Upperclass students may complete it in the Payroll Office, 212 College Street. Failure to complete this form will make a student ineligible to work.
