Beyond Barnard offers Drop-In Hours daily from 12pm - 1pm to answer any questions you may have about student employment. No appointment is needed - just stop by our office in Elliott Hall on the second floor!
There are 3 forms that are necessary for students to complete in order to start employment with Barnard: the I-9, the W-4, and the WTPA forms. These forms should be completed at home and then emailed or dropped off to Beyond Barnard. See below for the directions:
- Download the forms you need to complete or update.
- Fill them out and save to your computer.
- Sign them! A typed signature is not allowed. You can print, sign, and either take a picture or scan your form if you'd like to submit it via email.
The I-9 (Employment Eligibility Verification form) only needs to be completed the first time a student works at Barnard through Beyond Barnard.
If you are a first time employee of Barnard College you need to bring acceptable ID to fill out your I-9. You are not allowed to work until you have completed your employment forms, so if you are unable to stop in during Drop-In Hours, please call (212) 853-0770 to make an appointment.
Students must complete a W-4 (Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate form) the first time they are employed on Barnard's campus. If they claim exempt, they must update their W-4 every calendar year. If you are a Nonresident Alien, please review these supplemental instructions to assist you in completing your W-4.
Direct Deposit Form
If you'd like to receive your paycheck easily and immediately, you can opt to be paid via direct deposit. Your paycheck will be automatically deposited directly into a checking/savings account or onto a ready-to-use debit card. Fill out the form here, and then print it and drop it off at our office with any required attachments.
If you are a Columbia University student employed by Barnard College, or if you are an international student (both F-1 and J-1 visas), there are additional forms that may be required.
If you are a student at Columbia University but have been hired by an employer at Barnard College, you must fill out a Columbia Hire Request Form.
If you are an international student on an F-1 or J-1 visa, you will need to fill out a Social Security Verification Form. Additionally, if you have not previously logged on to BarnardWorks, you should fill out this form so we can create an account for you. Need additional assistance? Come in for employment counseling with Adeline Medeiros, available every Wednesday between 2pm - 4pm. Call 212-853-0770 to schedule a 15-minute appointment.
Statement of Confidentiality
Barnard College Employers strongly encouraged to require their student employees to sign Statements of Confidentiality. The Barnard approved Statement of Confidentiality form found here has been approved by the Beyond Barnard office and Barnard General Counsel, and protects the College from breeches in confidentiality regarding technology, intellectual property and the privacy and rights of students, staff and faculty.
Paid Family Leave Waiver
New York State Paid Family Leave (PFL) went into effect on January 1, 2018. PFL is a state-mandated program that provides employees with partially paid, job-protected leave in certain circumstances. The New York PFL benefit is funded through minimal deductions from employee paychecks. By statute, the weekly contribution rate is 0.126% of an employee’s weekly wage. This maximum contribution is $1.65 per week per employee.
You may be eligible to waive the PFL benefit and the payroll deductions. If your regular schedule is less than 26 consecutive weeks (6 months) or 175 days in a period of 52 consecutive weeks, you can simply complete the PFL-Waiver Form. If you wish to waive PFL benefit, please print and complete the PFL-Waiver Form, and either email the form to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax the form to 212.280.8766. Waiver forms must be submitted on or before February 15, 2018.
