So… You’ve Been Hired

student filling out paperwork

Congratulations on your new on-campus job!

If it’s your first job at PLU, you must submit employment forms at the Office of Student Employment in Ramstad Commons (room 112) before you are legally able to work on campus,.  You will need to turn in the forms before your first shift. Ramstad Commons is Open M-F, 8am-12pm and 1pm-5pm. Please read the following explanations for each of the forms before you come to our office.

I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification

This form is used to verify that you are authorized to work in the US. When you come to the Student Employment Office you need to bring original, non-photocopied, documents that prove that you are a US citizen or that you have work authorization. A list of acceptable documents is on page 3 of the I-9. The most common documents are a US passport, a social security card, or a birth certificate.

W-4 Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate

The W-4 will determine how taxes are deducted from your paycheck. If you aren’t sure how to fill out a W-4, do some research or ask for advice from someone you trust before coming to our office. We are not legally authorized to give you advice about this form.

Direct Deposit Form (optional)

If you wish to receive your paychecks via direct deposit, you will need to fill out a form with your bank’s routing number and your bank account number. You can find this information on your checks or by calling your bank.
