I-9 Anywhere Remote Hire INstructions

MSU’s Remote Hire Process is for employees who are unable to come to campus to complete Section 1 of the Form I-9 on or before the first date of hire and/or Section 2 within three days of the first date of hire. MSU utilizes I-9 Anywhere with Equifax, which allows electronic completion of the Form I-9 by an Authorized Representative identified by the employee.

Notice to Units: Due to the high volume of I-9 forms still needing physical inspections, employees within a one hour driving distance from campus will be expected to meet in-person with an I-9 Verifier on campus. 

Unit Instructions

  1. To complete an I-9 utilizing MSU’s Remote Hire Process, please contact MSU Human Resources (HR) at and provide the following information about the new employee:
    • First and last name
    • Email address
    • Zip code
    • Location code
    • Date of hire
  2. MSU Human Resources will provide instructions to the employee and a list of Authorized Representatives at institutions near the employee's zip code that participate in the CUPA-HR I-9 Reciprocal Processing Consortium. If there are no CUPA-HR Authorized Representatives within a reasonable distance, MSU HR will work with the employee to identify a notary or other Authorized Representative that may operate on behalf of MSU. 
  3. Once an Authorized Representative is identified, MSU HR will provide instructions to the I-9 Verifier. View a sample of the employee email here (PDF).

If you experience any technical difficulties, please contact MSU HR at HR.I9Admin@hr.msu.eduor 517-353-4434 for assistance.
