Student Payroll

Student payroll is processed generally through the student's department, with the exception that International Students are assisted in the process by International Services for Students and Scholars (ISSS). There will be opportunities during orientation for all Teaching Assistants to initiate the paperwork necessary to be paid. To verify employment eligibility, all students need to bring the following documents to Rensselaer:

U.S. citizens and permanent residents

  1. A current state-issued driver's license, or a state-issued ID card with photograph, or a U.S. Military card AND
  2. An original Social Security card or birth certificate. If available, U.S. citizens and permanent residents may substitute a U.S. Passport, a Certification of Naturalization, a Certificate of U.S. Citizenship or an Alien Registration card with photograph for the above two documents.

International students

  1. Foreign passport with an I-551 stamp or with an attached immigration room form I-94 AND
