Job opportunities are available both on and off campus. There are two types of on-campus student employment: Federal Work-Study (FWS) and Regular Student Employment (Non Work-Study).
Federal Work-Study awards are based on financial need and will be included in the financial aid awards of those students who qualify. All student employment positions on campus are competitive. Priority in hiring will be given to students who have a Federal Work-Study award. Please note the University does not guarantee placement for any student. However, the Center for Career Development can provide assistance for students who are beginning the job search process.
Please visit the Career Center’s Student Employment website for complete information.
Looking to hire a federal work-study or non work-study student employee? Complete the Student Employee Hiring Form.
Has your student employee’s job ended or are you terminating a student employee? Please complete the Student Employee Termination Form.
Priority hiring will begin for all Federal Work Study (FWS) students and returning non–work study (non-FWS) students on Monday, August 15 for one month with a start date for fall employment no earlier than Sunday, August 28 upon written approval from the student employment team.
Following the end of the priority hiring, all remaining open positions can be filled by students who have not already been hired into a primary position. This non-priority hiring period will begin on September 15 and end on September 30.
Students are eligible to apply for second positions after the non-priority hiring period has ended. The reason for this policy is to support the Center for Internships and Professional Development’s objectives to provide professional experiences to all student populations. There will be limited exceptions to this policy for certain positions that are not hours-driven. For example, student employees hired to tutor or support admissions tours/enrollment events are permitted to accept these positions as a second job during priority hiring. Students can review job postings in Handshake.
The process for new hiring form submissions for Fall 2022 is as follows:
Please Note: Hiring managers are asked not to give students a start date until both the supervisor and the student receive the approval notice via email from the team.
All undergraduate student positions are set up in the payroll systems as $12.00 per hour positions for the 2022-2023 academic year, including the winter and spring breaks. All graduate student positions are set up in the payroll systems as $15.00 per hour positions for the 2022-2023 academic year. Pay rates do not need to be included on the hiring form as all of the pay rates are set by Student Employment based on the specific position and coded in the payroll systems.The team will be reviewing these rates during the Spring 2023 semester to ascertain if any changes will be made for the following academic year.
Graduate and Theological students who have been offered and accepted an adjunct position cannot be classified as student employees. The Human Resources team has developed a specific position code for graduate students who will also serve as adjunct faculty. All students that fall in this category must notify their supervisor of the teaching position before accepting a student employment position. Please be aware that 3 and 4-credit courses taught by graduate and theological students equate to 12.5 hours of work per week, so additional on-campus work can only make up the difference for each course being taught. Hiring managers must confirm the student’s teaching status in the hiring form to ensure the student employment team sets up their secondary position appropriately.
International students cannot begin work until they have applied for a Social Security number and provide a receipt of the application (uploaded to ADP) showing that the application is in process. For more information on how to obtain a Social Security number, please contact the Office of International Students and Scholar Services at email@example.com.
Student employees in existing positions in departments that require student work during the break are permitted to work on-campus during that period. However, the Student Employment team will be in contact later in the semester to provide further information. It is important to understand that student employees are not authorized to work when the University is closed from December 23, 2022 through January 2, 2023.
