Department Information

Departments looking for detailed information in regards to the student hiring process can visit our Student Employee Acquisition page.

Student Hiring Steps

Below you will find the steps that need to be completed by the student in order to complete the hiring process.

Once a student is hired, they will need to visit the hiring department to fill out the following forms:

Student Employment Application
Student Employee FICA Exemption Checklist
Training Acknowledgement Form

The department will submit a hire form that will generate an onboarding email. The student will check their email and follow the instructions to complete the onboarding process. If an email is not received, check the spam folder. The email will direct the student to visit myHR (sign in with your university user ID and password) to complete a checklist of four forms:

Personal Information – this step will update personal information in the system.

Direct Deposit – have bank account information ready. Please note: first time entries will be accepted. However, if changes need to be made, you will need to visit Human Resources in 113 Centennial Hall to have the information updated manually.

This is NOT your debit card number or the account information on your deposit slip.

Federal and State W-4– this form determines the amount of federal and state taxes that will be withheld from each paycheck.

For help with this form go to: https://www.irs.gov/individuals/irs-withholding-calculator

International students will need to just sign and submit this form. They will be directed to manually fill out the form at a later date.

I-9 – Missouri S&T participates in E-Verify. This form verifies the identity and employment eligibility of all persons hired to work at Missouri S&T.

Foreign Visitor Tax Form (for international students only) - This form is not online. The hiring department should provide this form to students to complete and bring to the registration. You may also find the form below:

All onboarding documents need to be completed prior to attending Student Employee Registration

** If you do not have your social security card, you will need to visit the International Affairs office. They will provide a letter stating you will be working on campus.  You will present the letter along with the other required documentation to the Social Security Office. The list of required documents can be found at: http://www.ssa.gov/pubs/EN-05-10181.pdf

Students do not have to wait until they recieve their social security card to present documents to HR. However, when the social security card arrives in the mail, it will need to be submitted to Human Resources to complete the process.
