All Foreign National employees are entered into Glacier – a Nonresident Alien Tax Compliance Software for UW Employees

This is a secure web-based system that enables the foreign national student, staff, or faculty member to track their visa, passport, entry dates, country of residence, country of citizenship, US address, foreign address, Social Security number or ITIN. Based on this information University of Washington is able to know if the individual is eligible for any tax treaties, has passed a substantial presence test, or has become a “tax resident for tax purposes.” When a record is created by the employee, Glacier generates a tax summary page and populates the appropriate tax forms. Examples of these forms are the 8233, W-8Ben, and W-4 federal withholding form.

The respective Payroll Coordinator/Administrator enters the Foreign National employee into Glacier.  Glacier will prompt the employee directly to access their account.

Glacier access for employees:

As well as the help option contacts inside Glacier, you can contact a Foreign National Specialist at
