Student Employment

On-campus employment is available to qualified undergraduate day students. Campus jobs help students meet educational and personal expenses, as well as gain valuable work experience.

To qualify for student employment, students must be a minimum of half-time status, maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0, and be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, or eligible non-citizen.

Students earn minimum wage at $9.00/hour. Hours worked = hours paid. There is no compensation for sick, vacation, or snow days. Students can either receive a bi-weekly paycheck or request Direct Deposit.

New Student Information

Campus jobs are posted after July 1. It is the responsibility of the student to find a position. Please contact supervisors directly for their application requirements and availability.

Students working for the first time must complete forms I-9 and W-4 with the Office of Human Resources once they have been verbally offered a position. Form I-9 requires you to provide documentation to verify your identification. These documents need to be originals and cannot be expired. From the list of acceptable I-9 documents, you must present one from List A or one from List B, and one from List C.

Students cannot begin working on campus until their paperwork is completed.

Students must review and sign the Student Employee Handbook and Sexual Harassment Policy.
