To comply with the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, Vanderbilt is required to verify the identity and employment eligibility of new employees or employees assigned to a covered federal contract.

All employees at Vanderbilt University are required to complete Federal Form I-9 on or before their first day of employment. Completion of the I-9 form is an easy two-step process that involves providing basic, personal information, online through a secure web form and presenting original documents, confirming your identity and employment eligibility, in person to an HR representative to complete the process.  

New Employees: How to Complete an I-9

1
  • Staff: After accepting an offer of employment you will receive information via email on how to complete your new employee onboarding tasks online. This provides basic personal information that will initiate an email from Sterling Talent Solutions, the University’s I-9 and background check vendor, with instructions for completing section 1 of your I-9.  You must complete section 1 of federal form I-9 online prior to your first day of employment.
  • Students: Please complete the online web form by clicking here. Once the form is submitted, you will receive a link from our vendor, Sterling Talent Solutions, to complete section 1 online. If you do not receive the link within 2 business days, please contact i9@vanderbilt.edu. You must complete section 1 of federal form I-9 online prior to your first day of employment.  
  • Faculty/Post-Doctoral Fellow: The I-9 process will be initiated by Human Resources at the same time as your pre-employment background check through our vendor, Sterling Talent Solutions, and you will receive instructions from them via email. You must complete section 1 of federal form I-9 online prior to your first day of employment.

If you do not receive the email, or if you have difficulty accessing the link, please email i9@vanderbilt.edu.
