Student employees are responsible for completing all required University employment paperwork. In most cases, the department payroll administrator will provide the student employee with the proper forms, including:

  • The Federal Employment Eligibility Verification (I-9) form must be completed within three working days of the beginning of employment.

    • Section 1 must be completed by the student employee.

    • Section 2 must be completed by an I-9 partner, or authorized university representative, on or before the third day of employment. Please complete the form with Human Resources located in Regent 1B28. Please bring one or more of the required acceptable documents at time of completion. If you have any questions about the I-9 form, call 303-735-8191.
    • Departments with employees who are working out of the area or out of state should contact CU Boulder HR I-9 Office about options for completing the I-9. 
    • The Student Employment office is no longer offering this service.
  • The IRS Form W-4 allows student employees to have their pay taxed correctly and should be completed in the employee portal. Use the IRS Withholding Calculator to help you complete this form.

  • Direct Deposit Authorization should be completed in the employee portal. View instructions on accessing the employee portal and setting up direct deposit.

  • The Personal Data Worksheet and Emergency Contact Form will be provided by the employer. 

  • Student Retirement Forms  and the SSA-1945 may be required if a student is required to participate.
