Re: I-9 Employment Eligibility Project Deadline Extension

Please be advised that the deadline to complete your I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification has been extended beyond the original March 30 deadline. At this time, there are no sessions scheduled to complete your I-9 employment eligibility verification, but we will be announcing additional dates and locations to do so shortly.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience and continued cooperation in this important endeavor. Thanks to your cooperation, during the month of March, we have been able to successfully process more than 7,000 of the approximately 10,000 employees who had to undergo employment eligibility verification through the I-9 process. We look forward to meeting with the remaining employees to complete this project and ensure that the university is compliant with federal employment verification requirements.

If you have additional questions regarding the I-9 employment eligibility verification compliance project, please contact Jennifer Krell in my office at  Thank you again for your assistance in this project.
