Form i-9

MSU Human Resources verifies employment eligibility for the university using the Form I-9 online system. New employees as well as unit/department administrators share a responsibility for completing sections of the I-9 Form.

Newly hired and rehired employees to the university must complete Section 1 of the I-9 Form on or before the first day of employment. Original, unexpired documents from either List A or List B and C must be presented to the unit verifier within three business days of the first day of employment. 

COVID-19 Temporary i-9 provisions

On March 20, 2020, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that it will exercise discretion to defer the physical presence requirements associated with the Form I-9. More information regarding this new temporary I-9 provisional process can be found at our new I-9 Coronavirus Resources page.
