In-Person and Remote Dartmouth Student Employment

updated June 2, 2023

In-Person Student Employment

All students living locally and working for Dartmouth College are considered “In-Person”, whether they are completing the work on-site in a campus facility, or in their dorm/apartment. Employers should hire these student employees using the standard hourly-student hiring process.

Remote Student Employment

Dartmouth allows a temporary “remote” employment option for student employees if the hiring department has determined that the duties of the student position can be completed in a remote capacity and the student employee meets all of the requirements below.

If the Student Employee:

  1. is an active Dartmouth College student (not withdrawn from the institution)
  2. is living:
    • within the United States (US) throughout the entirety of their remote employment this term OR
    • will only be outside of the US for up to 89 days* and the employment arrangment has the support of divisional leadership (see International Staffing and Contractor policy for details)
      • and has presence outside of the US for 90+ days, the employer must have obtained express approval of the International Staffing Committee (ISC) in advance of the proposed work arrangment. It is strongly recommended that requests be made a minimum of 4 weeks prior to the start of the proposed employment arrangement.
  3. is fully authorized to work for Dartmouth College in the US as determined by the completion of a Form I-9
  4. has completed the online Student Employee Telecommuting Agreement (employer will receive email from SEO confirming that this has been completed)
  5. is supervised by a Dartmouth College staff or faculty
  6. accurately records their work hours each workday within the electronic timekeeping system


The employer may hire the student employee using the standard hourly-student hiring process after receiving an emailed copy of the completed agreement employment details entered by the student employee in the online telecommuting agreement.
