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 before allowing them to begin working. When your students come in to do paperwork with Student Employment, make sure 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.
