Finding On Campus Employment
Students interested in working on campus can check the following resources to identify available positions:
  • Career and Counseling Center Student Employment Site
  • Financial Aid Office (for those eligible for College Workstudy Funds)
  • Departmental Postings (which should also be posted with the Career and Counseling Center)
  • The Office of Graduate Studies (for Graduate Assistantships)

Completing Student Employment In-Processing (1st Time Student Workers)
Once a position on campus has been secured, new/first time student employees must visit the Human Resources (HR) Office before starting to work.  During this initial visit to HR, the student will complete the following documents and processes:

  • Personal Data Sheet
  • Tax Forms
  • Direct Deposit Enrollment
  • Employment eligibility verification (eVerify process);  Students should review the listing of acceptable original documents which must be presented to complete eVerify.  The list of acceptable documents is available on page 9 of the Department of Homeland Security Form I-9 document.

In addition to completing the above referenced forms and eVerify process, students will also be provided with details on completing the following requirements which take additional time to set-up and can not be completed immediately upon hire.

  • Mandatory Ethics Training
  • Complete ADP Payroll System registration process; The ADP allows students to manage their personal information (such as direct deposit updates, address, telephone number, etc).  Students will also enter their hours worked within the ADP system.
  • Add eTime as a service to ADP profile;  eTime is the section within ADP which allows students to enter their hours worked each pay period.

Returning / Rehired Student Workers 

Students are only required to complete HR in-processing once.  If a student is rehired by the same department or hired by a new department in subsequent semesters, it is not necessary to complete HR paperwork again.  However, it is required that students add eTime as a service each semester.

International Student Employment Notice
Students who are not naturalized or U.S. Citizens must receive appropriate employment authorization, verification and clearance EACH SEMESTER. This may include issuance of an employment clearance letter and/or other documentation.
