Social Security Number
If you will be paid by Boise State University, you will need a U.S. Social Security Number (SSN). Therefore, if you do not have a SSN from prior work in the U.S. you will need to apply for your SSN after checking in with an advisor in the Center for Global Engagement. It is highly recommended that you wait several days after arriving in the U.S. to apply for the SSN so that the government databases have time to sync up.
You can take your receipt that shows you applied for a SSN to Human Resources for I-9 purposes before you begin work.
