Form I-9 and E-Verify

The university utilizes Form I-9 and E-Verify to comply with requirements of the United States government. All individuals hired at the university must complete a federal I-9 form within three days of hire. Individuals that will be paid from a funding source that requires e-verification must be e-verified. Not all new hires at the university will need to be e-verified.

Form I-9

Form I-9 is used to verify the identity and employment authorization of individuals employed in the United States. As required by federal law, the university must complete Form I-9 for each individual employed in the United States. Form I-9 is required for both citizens and noncitizens.


The university is required to use the federal government’s E-Verify system to confirm the identity and work eligibility of faculty and staff (including temporary staff members) working on contracts that contain the FAR E-Verify requirement.
