Student Employment

The Financial Aid office is responsible for administration of the student employment program on campus. Some students have the opportunity to work on campus, both to earn money and to gain valuable experience. Students can refer to the Campus Employment Web site for more information.

Once eligibility is determined and a campus job is secured, each student must complete an I-9 form (Employment Eligibility Verification) and a W4 form (Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate) prior to the first day of work. Students should bring to campus their driver’s license or photo ID and their birth certificate or Social Security card in order to complete these forms. A valid passport is also an acceptable form of ID. Most campus jobs average 7-10 hours per week. Many departments on campus employ student workers. It is important to note that campus jobs are not guaranteed. Students must be proactive in their search for employment and are not placed in positions, but must apply directly with the departments they are interested in working with.

Student payroll is processed bi-weekly and paid by check or direct deposit; student wages are not applied directly to student account bills.
