Some J-1 visiting scholars are also employed at the University. All employees of the University must fill out paperwork with Human Resources and apply for a Social Security Number (SSN). Human Resources will need a copy of your DS-2019 to prove your employment eligibility. The employment must have already be pre-approved as part of your J-1 program.
All visiting scholars who are ISU employees must be in contact with ISSS, Human Resources, and the Payroll Office upon arrival to campus.
Scholars who do not receive prior written permission before participating in employment are engaging in illegal and unauthorized employment. This is a serious violation of your visa status and may result in termination of your SEVIS record.
