What to do once hired/Onboarding
Welcome to student employment at Roosevelt University. Please only sign up for an onboarding session after you have been hired for an on-campus job and if you have never worked at Roosevelt University before. All student employees must attend one session before they can begin to work. A confirmation email from the Office of Career Development will be sent to your Roosevelt email account and to your supervisor once you have completed onboarding and are authorized to begin working.
Onboarding provides new student employees key information about their new on campus job, such as, how to report their worked hours, where to obtain paychecks, and reviewing various university employee policies. Once onboarding has been completed, a student will not need to attend again for other on campus jobs that they are hired for.
REQUIRED before attending:
- STEP 1: Complete section 1 of the I-9 form. The employer code for Roosevelt University is 13955.
- STEP 2: Gather identifying documents that are acceptable for eligibility verification on the I-9 form. These identifying documents must be originals and must be presented in person when arriving for onboarding. Copies, pictures, and faxes of these documents will not be accepted. View the list of acceptable identifying documents that can be brought to onboarding.
- STEP 3: Bring your original identifying documents from step 2 to your onboarding session (these documents must be original, no copies, pictures or faxes are allowed). You will not be admitted to the session and cannot start working without bringing these original identifying documents. You may contact the Office of Career Development if you have any questions: 312-341-3560 or email@example.com.
OPTIONAL before attending:
- Complete the federal and state withholding allowance W-4 forms. If you do not complete these ahead of time, blank forms will be provided at the onboarding session.
