What counts as I-9 documentation?
You must provide ORIGINAL documentation of both identity and employment eligibility to verify your right to work in the United States.  A valid US passport will fill both these requirements.  Documentation of identity can be a Wentworth ID, driver’s license, or any official or state issued ID.  Documentation of employment eligibility can be a social security card or US birth certificate.  If you do not have any of these documents, refer to the acceptable documentation list Instructions for completing the I-9.

Why am I completing a W-4?
All students must complete a Federal Tax Withholding Form (W-4), which is used to determine how much money to withhold from your paycheck for federal taxes.  Complete the W-4 with your permanent address, not your WIT address. This address is where your paystub and W2 will be sent.  Instructions for completing the W-4.

What if I’m not a US Citizen?
International students and students who are not permanent US residents are required to secure a Letter of Clearance from the International Services Department PRIOR to securing a job.  Contact International Services during open office hours Monday, 2:00 -3:00 PM, Wednesday, 1:30 to 3:30 PM, and Friday, 10:30 AM to noon.
