Let's get started!

Now that you have been hired as a student employee, there are few steps you must complete before beginning your position. Please follow this page from beginning to end, and be sure to note the items that must be completed prior to or on your first day of work.

Returning student employees do not need to complete the required forms below each year.  If returning to your last position, please contact your last supervisor and they will initiate the re-hire paperwork. If not returning to your last position, please apply for a new job at http://jobs.nl.edu and complete your 2017-2018 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  An International student applying for a graduate assistant position is not required to complete the FAFSA.  International students are not eligible to apply for Federal work-study positions but may apply for Graduate Assistant positions.

You should contact Brisbane Rouzan, the Principal Designated School Official (PDSO) at BRouzan@nl.edu or 312.261.3461 for assistance with obtaining required documents needed to obtain a SSN or ITIN.

 

Your first day

If your supervisor did not discuss the dress code during your interview, dress conservatively until you are able to confirm the dress code with your supervisor.  We suggest a nice shirt (with no writing, logos, or other such branding), nice slacks or skirt, and nice comfortable shoes (avoid sneakers and flip-flop sandals).  Be sure that your hair is nicely styled.

Be prepared to submit the forms below on or before your first day of employment. Submitting the forms via fax or email in advance of your first day will speed up the process.
