Getting Started with Student Employment
To work on campus, you must complete the following documentation PRIOR to your start date. Failure to complete your I-9 in the required timeframe is against the law and may lead to your award being rescinded.
What counts as I-9 documentation?
You must provide ORIGINAL documentation of both identity and employment eligibility to verify your right to work in the United States. A valid US passport will fill both these requirements. Documentation of identity can be a Wentworth ID, driver’s license, or any official or state issued ID. Documentation of employment eligibility can be a social security card or US birth certificate. If you do not have any of these documents, refer to the acceptable documentation list.
Why am I completing a W-4?
All students must complete a Federal Tax Withholding Form (W-4), which is used to determine how much money to withhold from your paycheck for federal taxes. Complete the W-4 with your permanent address, not your WIT address. This address is where your paystub and W2 will be sent. Instructions for completing the W-4.
What if I’m not a US Citizen?
International students and students who are not permanent US residents are required to secure a Letter of Clearance from the International Services Department PRIOR to securing a job. Contact International Services during open office hours Monday, 2:00 -3:00 PM, Wednesday, 1:30 to 3:30 PM, and Friday, 10:30 AM to noon.
