On-Campus Student Employment Guide
Most campus offices employ student workers in data entry, secretarial/clerical and general office positions. Students are also employed by Facilities Management (Custodial, Grounds, Maintenance), Post Office, Heat Plant, Library, Bookstore, University Housing and as tutors and lab assistants in Student Success.
- Job Listings
Part-time listings for both on-campus and off-campus jobs are posted on the bulletin boards in the Sharwan Smith Center across the hall from the Center for Politics (173). Listings can also be found online on SUU's website by clicking on "Employment Opportunities" and then "Student Employment". NEW! You can receive student job postings in your email!!! Just go to http://www.suu.edu/ad/hr/request-student.html and enter your name and email address. Once a day I will send out an email listing any jobs that I have posted.
To be eligible to work on-campus during the school year, a student must be enrolled for a minimum of six credit hours.
- Application Procedure
Student jobs are advertised and the application form is available online or through the Human Resources Office in Admin 106. Each department selects its own student employees.
- DOCUMENTATION NEEDED TO SECURED A PART TIME JOB:
Federal law requires that all employees supply proof of identity and employability. Therefore, ALL STUDENTS MUST SUPPLY APPROPRIATE ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS BEFORE THEY CAN BE EMPLOYED ON-CAMPUS. A number of documents will suffice, but the most commonly used are one of the following combinations: unexpired driver's license and original social security card OR unexpired driver's license and original, certified birth certificate issued by a county or state government OR unexpired passport. A complete list of approved documents can be found on the back of the I-9 form (Page 5, if you follow the link). Human Resources will need to see original documents, not photocopies.
- Rate of Pay
Student workers are paid at least minimum wage, currently $7.25/hr. Individual departments may pay student workers at higher rates when the required skill level and/or experience justify a higher rate.
- Work Hours
Departments may adjust work hours to student class schedules. Student workers are usually limited to 20 hours of work per week while school is in session and are restricted to a maximum of 40 hours per week during holidays & summer months.
Work-Study is part of a federal financial assistance program for students. Work-study awards are made to students as part of the student’s financial aid package. A student who has a work-study award may work in either a work-study position or in a regular-payroll job; however, only students who have received work-study awards will be hired for work-study jobs.
First-time SUU student employees or employees who have not worked on campus within the last 12 months must complete three payroll forms: the Payroll Action Form, I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification, and W-4. After a student has been selected for a campus job, they need to complete the above-listed forms at the Human Resources Office, Admin 106. Once the forms are completed, the employee will be given a hire date from Human Resources and work authorization to take back to their supervisor. STUDENTS MAY BEGIN WORK ONLY AFTER COMPLETING THE NECESSARY FORMS AND RECEIVING WORK AUTHORIZATION FROM THE HUMAN RESOURCES OFFICE. Students who have worked at SUU within the last 12 months will not have to fill out payroll forms, but may want to fill out a new W4 form, update addresses, and check any previous direct deposit information.
