New student employee I-9 process

Aug. 12, 2019

In an effort to streamline the student employee onboarding process, all student employee I-9 forms will be processed through the Career Center, effective Thursday, Aug. 15. This change applies to all student job types whose jobs are located on the main campus and Discovery Park, including:

  • Hourly student employees
  • Salaried graduate assistants
  • Teaching Fellows
  • Teaching Assistants
  • College work study students

This new, centralized process is designed to simplify the new hire process for student employees and to enhance their onboarding experience.

The I-9 form is a federally required form used to verify the identity and employment authorization of individuals hired for employment in the United States. The new employee must complete Section 1 of the form on or before the first date of employment. In addition, the new employee must provide identification documents for the completion of Section 2 on or before the third day of work. Section 2 will now be completed by the Career Center, not individual units or divisions.

Student employees may visit the Career Center in Chestnut Hall, Suite 103, to complete the I-9 Monday through Friday as a walk-in between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., and by appointment between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. or after 4 p.m. For questions regarding the centralized student employee I-9 process, please contact the Career Center at 940-565-2105 or career.center@unt.edu.
