Student employment is more than just campus jobs. They offer the opportunity to explore career options, obtain transferable skills, work with faculty and staff, and help ease financial burdens.

Are you supposed to receive funds through any HOUR programFollow these steps to assure you receive your funding:

  1. Download and complete the HOUR New Hire form in the HOUR resource section.
  2. Return the completed form to HOUR (via email or printed and dropped off at the HOUR office)
    • If you are an international student and don’t think you have a social security number (SSN), the university assigned you a temporary SSN when you first came. You will use this number for the form. Student employment will work with you to get you a permanent SSN that you can provide to HOUR once received. We will update your record with the new information.
  3.  Once the form is received and entered by HOUR staff, you will receive a Confirmation of Campus Employment form from HOUR to bring with you to Student Employment.
  4. Schedule an appointment with Student Employment to complete your I-9 paperwork.
    • This must be done no later than 3 days after the official start date noted on your Confirmation of Campus Employment form.
    • If you have already been employed by the university in any position, you should not have to complete the I-9 again. Call student employment to verify your I-9 is still current.
    • If you are an international student, you will also need to complete the FNIF (Foreign National Information form) for student employment.
  5. We strongly recommend you sign up for direct deposit as soon as possible to assure your funds are available as quickly as possible.
  6. To set-up direct deposit you must have an account with a U.S. financial institution (bank or credit union).
  7. If you choose to not set up direct deposit, your physical check will be available in the Payroll office at the Eastern campus at 1101 East 33rd Street, Suite D. Hours are Mon – Fri 8:30 am – 5:pm. A regular shuttle runs to that campus (schedule found here). We do NOT recommend you try to walk to the Eastern campus.

More than 40% of Hopkins undergraduates have an international experience prior to graduation. Students participate in study abroad and international projects in over 50 countries worldwide. The mission of the Office of Study Abroad is to promote, support, and develop international programs that foster creativity, discovery, and excellence in undergraduate education.

In addition to traditional semester or year abroad educational programs, Study Abroad works with students and mentors to facilitate research opportunities. If you are planning a research project that involves international travel, you must contact the office to get approval for the travel (even if you will be staying with family or friends).

Do not wait to schedule a meeting with Study Abroad. It should be one of your first meetings as you begin planning an international project or opportunity.
