1 The Basics of Hiring Student Employees What’s different about hiring an international student? Wonderful! Working with an international student can be a rewarding learning experience for you and the student. The basic steps for hiring a student employee are as follows: On-Campus Eligibility Form Step 1 Determine your department’s needs and budget. Step 2 “Post” your job opening. Step 3 Research eligibility of applicants in Banner Step 4 Select the student you want to hire & submit a “Student Worker Request.” Step 5 Check for work approval using the Banner system. Step 6 Make sure the student completes, or has completed, an I-9 form and a W-4 form. Step 7 “Close” the job opening. Notify applicants not selected of hiring decision. Conduct Interviews Step 8 International students must be currently employed or have written proof of a job offer before they are eligible to apply for a Social Security card. You must provide verification of the job offer in a letter. International students must complete one extra form to determine eligibility to work: the On- Campus Eligibility Form, available on the ISSS office website. Once approved, the student should bring a copy of the approval with him when he comes to the interview. Completing the I-9 and W-4 forms is a little different for international students. So you want to hire an international student? International Students

3 The Basics of Hiring Student Employees On-Campus Employment Eligibility Form The “On-Campus Employment Eligibility Form” form is completed by the international student. The form is available on the International Student and Scholar Services office website in pdf form. Once completed and turned in, F-1 status will be verified. Approval will be ed to SFAO, HR, the student and the supervisor. This form is the student’s responsibility to complete each semester of employment including summer. If a student comes to you to interview without approval from ISSS, you should direct him or her to ISSS to complete this form before proceeding with the interview. Citizenship status may be confirmed on RJASERF in the Miscellaneous block under “Citizen Type.” This is a sample approval that will be sent from ISSS to SFAO if the international student receives approval to work International Students

4 The Basics of Hiring Student Employees On-Campus Employment Eligibility Form A little more information about F-1 status… F-1 status refers to the student's immigration status (which is found on their visa and I-94 card). The majority of our international students are issued an F-1 visa (student visa), which is issued to those people planning to come to the U.S. to study. This visa allows them to work on-campus (not off-campus) while a student. Other Baylor international students may have another type of visa that does not allow them to work while they are students. It is for this reason that we must check to make sure the student is eligible before they are allowed to work. If they work and their visa does not allow them to work, it jeopardizes their immigration status and causes problems for the student and for Baylor. International Students

The student must have this letter from you in order to receive a Social Security card. This is a sample letter created by ISSS. You may copy this one or write your own. The letter must be on department letterhead with an original signature.

Other important facts International students may pursue any available positions except those identified as “Community Service” on the Student Employment web site. International students may only work on campus. They may not work off campus. Their visas do not allow this. Remember that the student may choose which forms of identification to present for the I-9 form. You are not allowed to ask to see any additional forms of identification. The “On Campus Employment Eligibility Form” must be completed by international students every semester (fall, spring and summer). If there is a “status” change after the international student completes the “On Campus Employment Form” through ISSS, you will be notified via of the change. Please remind your international student to complete this document each semester in order to remain in compliance. If an international student works when he/she is not eligible, they could face deportation. Please be sure they are approved to work before allowing them to do so. Approval to work begins with the approval the international student brings with them to a job interview. After you have decided to hire an international student, you need to complete the “Student Worker Request” form and then view their approval to work in Banner on RJASEAR by seeing the job set up with your department account number.
