Host an International Student

The Friends of International Students (FIS) host program recruiting and matching process for the recently admitted Class of 2021 continues! The Class of 2021 will include more than 70 international students, including some U.S. students who have lived abroad and international exchange students. Please contact us if you are interested in hosting in the fall and spread the word in our community.

International Student & Scholar Services will hold a series of information meetings about the program throughout the summer on the 2nd floor of the Service Building. We ask that new hosts attend a meeting so that we can meet them and share more information about the program. If you are an experienced host, you are welcome to join us as your stories and insights are vital to friends who are new to FIS and trying to decide if they would be a good fit for the program.

We have only 2 more information meetings scheduled, please join us to learn more!

 

Tuesday, August 22                                  12:30-1:30 p.m.

 

Wednesday, September 13                      5:15-6:15 p.m.

 

To register for a meeting, please email ISSS at isss@middlebury.edu (subject line: FIS Host Program) or call us at 802.443.5858. Feel free to bring your lunch to our afternoon meetings.

We invite all who are interested to become a part of this wonderful program!

Employing Students This Academic Year

Posting Your Position Online

All positions that are hiring new students (with the exception of Research Assistants) are posted online. Having a central place for students to go in their search for on campus employment will allow them to view the position’s description, provide a clear outline of the process by which students are considered for a specific position and will ensure equal access to employment opportunities.

See Using PeopleAdmin in the Supervisor Tool Box at go/seo for instructions.

Postings will be made visible to students on September 4. The week before classes begin and during the first two weeks of school, students that have been awarded Federal Work Study funds or a College Job as part of their financial aid package will have the chance to apply for posted jobs on campus. All other students must wait to begin applying until Monday, September 25. The intent is to assist students with a demonstrated financial need to obtain a job that best meets their needs. (Yes, it is okay to ask a student if they received Federal Work Study or a College Job.) If you are rehiring a student that has worked for you previously, or for research purposes, financial aid status is not relevant.

Blue Employment Cards

Student employees MUST complete the federally required I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification form and a W-4 tax withholding form in order to work. Once these forms have been completed (this only needs to be done once!) the student will receive a blue employment card indicating that they are eligible to work for the College. Blue cards, once issued, are valid until the student graduates. Students that have NOT received their blue card CANNOT work. 

Important Reminders:

  • All, non-research assistant, position openings must be posted in PeopleAdmin. Supervisors are also encouraged to utilize PeopleAdmin’s Applicant Tracking module which allows students to apply online to a posted position.
  • Student employees are limited to working no more than 20 hours per week in on-campus jobs during the academic year, with the exception of full-week recesses.
  • Supervisors who opt not to use the Applicant Tracking module in PeopleAdmin will need to complete an Electronic Personnel Action Form (EPAF) in BannerWeb for all students hired to work during the academic year. Supervisors who opt to use the Applicant Tracking module will only need to EPAF new hires, returning students who did not work the prior year or are not returning until after the fall term, and returning students who have been promoted to another position.
  • The Jobs Effective Date in the EPAF should be the first day that the student will begin working in the ’17-’18 AY; this must be 09/11/2017 or later.
  • Certain positions require pre-employment screenings and/or PCI Training as identified in the position’s job description in PeopleAdmin. Any offers of employment for positions that require pre-employment screenings and/or PCI Training are contingent upon their completion. Students may NOT begin working until all required pre-employment screenings and/or trainings have been successfully completed.
  • Supervisors are encouraged to hire only financial aid recipients until September 25.
