Social Security Certification for F-1 Students Working On-Campus

The SSA has approved the following form to be used to certify on-campus employment for Boston University. The form must be completed by the BU hiring department and printed on department letterhead. The Certification of On-Campus Employment for a Social Security Number Application has been created in Adobe PDF format and contains fillable fields.

Your supervisor or hiring department should use Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader to complete all the fields and then print the form on department letterhead. After your supervisor signs the form and gives the original to you, bring the completed form to the ISSO to obtain an endorsement by an International Student Advisor.

F-1 students must present an original version of this form with both sections completed and signed along with your passport, I-94 and I-20 when you visit the SSA office to complete your SSN application.

We encourage you to read the Social Security Card Application Procedures for additional information. If you have any questions regarding this process or the form, please don’t hesitate to contact the ISSO.
