Required Documentation to Work
All incoming students intending to work on or off campus must bring their acceptable Form I-9 documents with them.
All required documents must be unexpired originals. This means that photocopies and scans are not acceptable documents. Students without these documents cannot fill out an I-9 and will not be allowed to work until they present the required documents.
