Various departments at the CIA hire student workers for employment. Students who are interested in working on campus (either through the Federal Work-Study program or not) must submit an employment application through the student job board. Instructions are available on the Student Employment page of CIA Main Menu. Campus employment is not guaranteed.
To participate in on-campus employment, students must complete a registration process that includes completing a W-4 and an I-9 form. The I-9 form, required by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, establishes eligibility to work in the United States, and requires students to present original documentation to verify their eligibility. Students at the New York campus must visit the Student Employment Office to complete their registration after they have applied online. Students at the California and Texas campuses should visit the Administration Office for assistance with their registration.
Once students complete the registration process begin working, they should speak with their supervisor to ensure proper payment, including use and location of time clocks.
Direct deposit is available to student employees. Students who choose to sign up for direct deposit must provide bank information such as routing and account numbers. For students who opt not to participate in direct deposit, their paychecks will be delivered to the Administration Office.
