    Working on Campus

    Students must find their own jobs. No student is guaranteed a job. Employers are made aware of students who are eligible for FWS and these students are to be given priority in the hiring process. A maximum of twenty hours (20) per week may be worked during periods of enrollment. The current wage rate is $7.25/hour. Students are paid on a monthly basis for the number of hours worked. Pay schedules and time sheets are available in the Financial Aid Office.

    How to find a job

    1. Review student employment positions
    2. Check to see if you qualify for work study (noted on your Financial Aid Package).
    3. Complete your paperwork: during check-in before classes start in August or in the Financial Aid Office (Padua 228). These forms must be completed before you can receive a paycheck:
      • Form I-9
      • Form W-4
      • A copy of your photo ID and your signed social security card
      • Certificate of Residency form
    4. Look and listen for potential jobs: it's your responsibility to find a job.  Some examples of areas with work study positions include:
      • Academic departments
      • Administrative departments (Computer Services, Admissions/Financial Aid, Registrar)
      • Student services departments (Campus Post Office, ACE, Frankies/Torvian, Athletics)
    5. Each month, you must submit your time sheets to the Financial Aid Office. A monthly paycheck will be issued based off of the hours worked.
