Global Human Resources

Global HR is Georgia Tech’s primary resource for matters involving the employment and taxation of foreign nationals on campus as well as providing guidance for the Institute’s employees working outside of the United States.

Please be reminded that if you had the benefit of a tax treaty in 2017, and you are still a nonresident alien, you will need to log in to GLACIER and complete the tax treaty renewal process. Within GLACIER, you should see a button marked “tax treaty renewal.” Choose that option, complete the data entry, print, sign, and return the treaty paperwork to GTHR at your earliest convenience. Any treaties received after Jan. 8, 2018, may not be applied until the February 2018 paycheck. Please contact Jessica Dunn at with any questions.

Tax Obligations

All foreign national employees at Georgia Tech are required to use GLACIER secure online tax and treaty compliance software.
