International students must first obtain a Social Security card before beginning work in order to be paid for employment. Part of the application for the Social Security number includes a letter from your on-campus employer. Please see your advisor or the Director of International Student Services for complete information about this process.
When you receive your card, you must see an International Tax Administrator, either Lauren Flaherty in the Financial Aid Office or Hojae Lee in the Business Office, to complete the necessary payroll paperwork. All paperwork must be completed BEFORE you can work or be paid. (Please note that this information must be updated every calendar year.)
