Hiring Work-Study Student Employees

There are certain requirements a student must meet in order to be eligible to work in a Work-Study student job class. Read on for more information.

  • If you're looking to fill a position with a Work-Study student employee, the first step is to post the job announcement with the Student Employment Office.
  • 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 the Student Employment Office to verify each Work-Study student employee's eligibility for Work-Study before allowing him/her to begin working.
  • 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.
  • During the summer, students must be enrolled in summer OR enrolled in the previous spring semester and upcoming fall semester in order to work in a student job class.
  • To work as Work-Study employees during the summer, students must have an upcoming academic year FAFSA on file with the Financial Aid Office AND demonstrate financial need by the start of summer term.
  • 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.
