Forms for Working on Campus

The I-9 form is required to legally begin work on campus. Once a department manager offers you a job, download and complete the I-9 and bring the form to Student Financial Services with the required original identification and employment authorization documentation (no copies/scans/pictures) listed on the last page of the form.  

  • You will most likely need to bring these forms of ID from home, as it requires more than just a drivers license.  Generally students use either a Passport, Passport Card, Social Security Card or birth certificate along with with their student ID or license.
  • This form can only be completed after you have been offered a job on campus and must be completed prior to being hired. The I-9 form is available for download in both printable and fillable versions on the Student Financial Services website. You should only need to complete the I-9 form once while working at Vassar.

When your form is complete, the Student Finanacial Services office will give you a hiring form to return to your supervisor to let them know you can be hired in JobX. Once hired, you will receive an email notification with your position information and you can legally begin working. If you do not receive this email, please contact your supervisor to ensure the hiring has gone through.
