GLACIER is an independent software system provided thru Arctic International LLC. It is designed to collect information regarding an individual's:
- immigration status
- history of presence in the U.S. to determine an individual's residency tax status (nonresident or resident alien for tax purposes)
- eligibility to claim a tax treaty exemption and/or the nonresident social security tax exemption
The system is designed to allow an individual to complete all information from any computer with an internet connection. The international student will be notified by the Payroll Tax Coordinator, to complete the information in GLACIER.
International student applicants will be required to print and sign GLACIER forms, then submit forms with copies of SSN, visas, passport, and immigration documents. Documents will be reviewed and appropriate tax status for each individual determined and applied.
