If you are an alien (not a citizen or national of the U.S. or lawful Permanent Resident), your eligibility for employment is dependent upon your status.
Verification of Identity and Work Authorization
Any offer of employment is contingent upon your completing the Immigration and Naturalization Service Employment Eligibility Verification (Form I-9) and providing documents to verify your identity and employment eligibility as required by law. When completing the Form I-9, you will be required to attest that you are a citizen or national of the U.S., a lawful Permanent Resident or an alien authorized to work. For further information, see our Form I-9 - Employment Eligibility Verification webpage for a list of acceptable documents for verification of identity and work authorization.

Criminal background checks apply to all full-time, part-time, regular, temporary or student positions.
It is the policy of The University of Texas at Arlington to conduct a criminal background check including sex offender registry check on any applicant, internal or external, who is under final consideration for employment with the University. This applies to all full-time, part-time, regular, temporary or student positions.
In addition, you will be required to provide in writing any criminal charges or convictions, including any requirement or possible requirement to register as a sex offender, which occurred after the date of your application. You would not be required to report misdemeanor offenses punishable only by a fine. If you fail to comply with this provision, may be disqualified from consideration for employment.
Once hired, University policy requires employees to report to their supervisor within five business days any criminal complaint, information, indictment, no contest plea, guilty plea, or criminal convictions, including registration as sex offender or requirement to register as a sex offender. Misdemeanor offenses punishable only by fine do not need to be reported.
Requirements of Social Security Number in Employee Records within the University of Texas System.
Section 7(7) of the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C.552a) requires that when any Federal, State or local government agency requests an individual to disclose his/her social security number, that individual must also be advised whether that disclosure is mandatory or voluntary, by what statutory or other authority the number is solicited, and what uses will be made of it. Accordingly, employees or applicants for employment are advised that disclosure of an employee's social security number (SSN) is required as a condition for employment within the University of Texas System and its Members, in view of the practical administrative difficulties which would be encountered in maintaining adequate employee records without the continued use of the SSN.
The SSN is used to verify the identity of the employee, and as an employee account number (identifier) throughout the period of employment in order to record necessary data accurately. As an identifier, the SSN is used in such employee activities as: determining and recording entitlement and payment for workers' compensation; reporting earnings to the Texas Workforce Commission, which serves as the basis for determining any future unemployment compensation insurance benefits; reporting personal data in system group insurance files; determining and recording service for retirement and other benefits based on length and dates of employment and other service; and such other related requirements which may arise.
The University of Texas System and its Members have, for several years consistently required the disclosure of the SSN on employment application forms and other necessary employee forms and documents used pursuant to statue passed by the State of Texas and United States and regulations adopted by agencies of the State of Texas and the United States, and by the Board of Regents of the University of Texas System.
If you are a male between the age of 18 and 25, federal law requires that you must be registered with the U.S. Selective Service System, unless you meet certain exemptions under Selective Service Law.
Statement of Selective Service Registration Status
Under HB 558, enacted by the 76th Texas State Legislature, if you are currently of the age and gender requiring registration with Selective Service, but knowingly and willfully fail to do so, you are ineligible for employment with an agency in any branch of Texas state government. Any offer of employment is contingent on your compliance with Selective Service law.
Certification of Registration Status
Almost all male U.S. citizens, and male aliens living in the U.S., who are 18 through 25 years of age, are required to register with Selective Service. Non-citizens not required to register include men who are in the U.S. on student or visitor visas. If you are not registered as required, you are presently not eligible to be hired and should register promptly at a United State Post Office. A Certificate of Mailing may be obtained from the Post Office at such time that you mail your registration and may be used as proof of your application until you receive your Selective Service Registration Card.
Should any question arise regarding your registration or eligibility for an exemption, you may request an official "status information" letter from the Selective Service System by calling (847) 688-6888, or by sending a written request to the Selective Service System at P.O. Box 94638, Palatine, IL 60094-4638.
