Students may not start work until their I-9 documents have been verified.
International students: prior to getting your I-9 verified, you must complete the Office of International Programs (OIP) On-Campus Employment CertifIcation (PDF) which is needed prior to I-9 verification. Once the I-9 is verified, make an appointment to complete your SPAR form with the University Tax Specialist,http://fiscaff.sfsu.edu/taxservices.
If a student has already completed an I-9 verification because they have worked with a University employer before, and the student's service indicator in Student Center shows their I-9 Verification is current, they DO NOT need to complete a new I-9 verification. Students who might need to complete a NEW I-9 verification include International Students, Permanent Residents and those with an Employment Authorization card depending on their respective end dates which can be found listed in their Student Center.
STUDENTS MAY NOT BEGIN WORK UNTIL AFTER THE I-9 VERIFICATION HAS BEEN COMPLETED.
Many student employment positions may require a background check. Please contact Human Resources for assistance with this process.
