The U.S. government requires all employers to verify eligibility to work for each person they hire. As part of that verification process, a Form I-9 must be completed by all employees, including student employees. This refers to students who are new to the university payroll system or students who have had a break in service.
There are two sections that must be completed on an employee’s initial Form I-9:
This section must be completed online by visiting www.newI9.com
- US citizens will use Employer Code 11472; for location choose “Students from KSAS and WSE”
- International students and permanent residents, please see instructions below.
- This section must be completed in-person at the Student Employment Services office within 3-business days of the first day of work for pay; an appointment is required. Make an appointment.
- In order to complete section two, you MUST bring certain required documents to your appointment:

An individual whose employment authorization has expired must re-verify their form 1-9. Re-verification must occur no later than the date that employment authorization expires. The employee MUST present original documents of their choice from the list of PDF Document: acceptable documents (List A or C). Students may wish to present a combination of documents that indicate their classification is work authorized.

Legal Permanent Residents
Legal Permanent Residents (LPR) are not subject to re-verification whether their LPR card has an expiration date of 2 years or 10 years. Only LPR who enter the country with the 1-551 temporary stamp in their foreign passport are subject to re-verification. In that case, the expiration would be 1 year from the date of entry.
