What is an I-9?
An I-9 or Form I-9 is a federal document used to verify your identity and eligibility for employment in the United States. This form must be completed before you are able to work for the University regardless of citizenship. I-9’s are done in two parts. The first part is done on your own, using the University’s online system. The second part is completed in person by providing acceptable forms of identification.
How to complete an I-9
Please do not print your I-9 or the confirmation. Our process is entirely electronic.

I-9 next steps
After Part II of the I-9 is complete it may take up to four days to process into our student employment system. You are able to check the status of the I-9 in JobLink on the profile page. The I-9 field will indicate Yes or No.
Please note, an I-9 should remain valid for the length of a student’s degree program and only needs to be completed once for jobs through student employment.
Once the I-9 processes and all employment prerequisites are complete, the supervisor will receive an email with the start date. Students are not permitted to work before all the prerequisites are complete.
