Before starting your job search, go to the Wolverine Access > Student Business page and complete the U-M Student Temporary Employment Application.
Once you have been offered a job, you must complete the materials for hiring to be officially hired for the job. Please be prepared to complete all required employment forms.
- Federal Form I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification Form
The Form I-9 is simple to complete. You must present an original document or documents that establish your identity and employment eligibility. Please review the back side of the I-9 form for all acceptable documents.
- Direct Deposit Authorization
Direct Deposit is the University’s recommended method of delivering your paycheck. Your paycheck is deposited directly into your bank account, and you can access your pay stubs from any computer using Wolverine Access > Student Business.
- W-4 Tax (Federal and Michigan Tax Withholding)
Upon hire, the University assumes a Federal and Michigan tax filing status of “single with no exemptions.” If your filing or exemption status is different from this, please update the information in Wolverine Access > Student Business. Look for the Federal and Michigan W-4 links.
In most instances, you may update your Federal W-4 information using Wolverine Access. First, follow the steps to view your W-4 information. Make changes to your Federal W-4 information and submit.
If you are not a U.S. citizen or Permanent Resident, you cannot update your Federal W-4 information using the web; you must complete a hardcopy form. Both forms are available for printing from the W-4 page on Wolverine Access.
- Work-Study Job Certification Form
Only complete this form if your employer is a non-University agency.
