Student Employment

Enrollment Services encourages students to seek employment on campus. Jobs are funded through regular university funding or as Federal Work Study, resulting from the FAFSA, (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).

Current job opportunities, as well as eligibility criteria for student employment, can be found on the links below. Other job opportunities may also be available by inquiring with departments directly.

Students must complete the appropriate paperwork, including an I-9 form and a drug-free form through their University employer before beginning their employment. Students are paid biweekly at an hourly rate for the hours worked. Your work study employment award cannot be deducted from your term bill.

University Payroll

The University also provides student employment funds. Your eligibility to participate in this program is determined by the Office of Enrollment Services.

Students are able to fill out their W4’s and sign up for direct deposit directly on e-campus. The W-4 information, once updated, will take effect immediately. The direct deposit, however, takes on pay period to take effect. The first pay period in which the student signs up for DDP, we send a zero balance electronic file to their bank to make sure all of the information they entered into the system is correct. If everything transmits correctly, the second pay period will be directly deposited.
