How do I get a job?
It takes an easy five-step procedure:
- Go to the Student Employment Office, Academic Center #102, to complete required student employment paperwork:
- Show required forms of identification when completing paperwork. Acceptable form(s) of identification are detailed on the I-9 form. Must be originals, no photocopies allowed.
- Campus jobs are posted on the career development web page: Campus Jobs Database New job openings are also sent by email to students.
- Are you work-study eligible? Meaning — are you eligible to earn federal work-study dollars? Preference is given to work-study eligible students when possible. Supervisors have access to the eligibility list and will be able to check.
- You will receive a Student Employment Agreement (“contract”) if you are hired. Bring the completed contract to the student employment office for final approval and signature. Finally—pick up a time sheet and pay schedule at the business office.
Important: A student is not allowed to begin work until a completed contract is turned in to the business office, along with the W-4, K-4 and I-9 forms.
How do I get paid?
Time sheets are due in the business office on the 17th of each month. (The pay period goes from the 16th of one month to the 15th of the next.) Work recorded on a time sheet must coincide with the dates on a signed contract.
Go to the business office on PAYDAY to pick up your check or to endorse it over to your student account. Time sheets may not be accumulated but must be turned in on a regular, monthly basis.
Can I use my earnings to pay my college bill?
If you wish to use your earnings to pay on your student account, you must get approval from Karen Garcia in the Office of Financial Aid/Student Accounts.
A decision to allow you to apply earnings to your bill will be based on a completed student employment contract for the current year, the number of hours on the contract and the success of your previous semester’s or year’s work and payment obligations.
Note: A first-year student will not be considered for this payment plan until he/she has had a successful work experience for a semester.
