Primary Information

    Welcome to Tufts!

    Completing your I-9 is a critical, required step in your on-boarding, and we look forward to assisting you.

    During your onboarding process, you will receive an email from I-9Everywhere - a third-party remote I-9 Verification provider - through which you may complete your remote I-9 form:
    1. Complete Section 1 of your I-9 online at I-9Everywhere.com upon receiving your invitationYou may complete your I-9 before or on your first day of employment. You will select and upload documents that can prove your citizenship status. Please consulte the Acceptable Documents list linked below. Upon completion of Section 1, you will be prompted to select someone from your personal network (a colleague, friend or family member) to review your original documents in-person with you. Be sure to notify the individual that you have selected them to avoid confusion. Note, you do not need to come to campus, unless you choose to have a colleague or friend complete Section 2 on campus. 
    2. Complete Section 2 of your I-9 in-person with a member of your network.   When you are together in-person, this individual can reference the link provided in their email/text message from I-9Everywhere, and will be prompted to review the original documents you provide and complete the process online. 
    That's it! Once your authorized representative has completed Section 2 of your I-9, the I-9 will be reviewed by an audit team at I-9Everywhere for Compliance purposes.
