If this is your first job on the Middlebury College campus, you will need to visit student employment with some documents:
Obtain a blue Student Employment Card from the Student Employment Office. (The Student Employment office is located on the second floor of the Service Building. The office is open Monday through Friday, 9:00am-5:00pm.) To do this, you must fill out your I-9 Employment Eligibility and W4 Tax Withholding forms. Typically, students present an original Passport (expired okay) OR a picture I.D. WITH a Birth Certificate OR Social Security Card. Please visit http://www.middlebury.edu/offices/business/seo for more information on this process and for a more extensive list of documents that you can present.
Please bring the necessary documents to campus, and visit SEO before we have our Organization Meetings:
