This page is designed to provide guidance to members of the Pepperdine University community, who desire to retain the services of a Nonresident Alien through payment for services rendered, award scholarships, or reimbursement of expenses. This page is to help ensure that all arrangements for the service and payments are made in accordance with the regulations established by the Federal Department of Immigration and Naturalization Services (INS) and Internal Revenue Service (IRS). When we refer to the term resident alien or nonresident alien, we are using the IRS definition for taxation issues.
