Hiring Off-Campus Work-Study Student Employees
There are certain requirements a student must meet in order to be eligible to work for an approved off-campus work-study employer.
- If you are looking to fill an off-campus position with a work-study student employee, the first step is to post the job announcement with Student Employment.
- Students will contact you directly in response to your job posting. You will interview and select the top candidates for each position.
- You must wait for Student Employment to verify each work-study student employee's eligibility for work-study before allowing him/her to begin working. Make sure when your students come in to do paperwork in Student Employment they let us know they're working for an off-campus work-study approved agency, to avoid any confusion.
- During the academic year, undergraduates must be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours per semester in order to receive work-study and to work in a student job class. Graduate students must be enrolled in at least 4 credit hours in order to receive work-study.
- To work as work-study employees during the summer, students must meet the eligibility criteria for summer work-study.
- Off-campus work-study student employees are subject to the Student Hourly Employee Work Hours Policy, limiting the amount of hours an employee can work.
- Keep in mind our office does not perform background checks or any type of screening, so be sure to ask good questions when you interview the students who contact you.
