Requirements for All Student Employees

Checklist of Requirements:
  • In order to receive Federal Work Study, you must be enrolled full-time (12 hours for undergraduate, 6 hours for graduate) during the semester in which you will be working.  If the student withdraws from the university, he/she MUST cease working immediately and your supervisor must submit your final timesheet.
  • All students must maintain good satisfactory academic progress in order to receive and continue to receive Federal Work Study.
  • I-9/Tax Form Packet
  • Every employee is required by federal law to establish their identity and eligibility to work in the United States.  Students who have not completed this packet will not be allowed to begin their position.
  • To complete the I-9 form, the student must be able to present forms of identification:

    • One (1) document from List A 
              OR
    • A COMBINATION of one (1) document from List B and one (1) document from List C (please refer to the List of Acceptable Documents of Form I-9).

    You must also complete the W-4 Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate and the NC-4 Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate.
  • These  forms must be submitted to the office along with your I-9 Form. All forms must be on file before a student will be allowed to begin their Student Employment.
Job Expectations
  • Job duties are assigned by the supervisor and are expected to be efficiently carried out by the students 
  • It is the responsibility of the student to notify his/her supervisor when he/she is unable to work as scheduled.
  • Students are expected to arrive on time and work scheduled hours.
  • Students must dress appropriately with regards to assigned job.
  • Supervisors have the right to terminate students from their work site and the Office of Financial Aid will cancel your Federal Work Study award at anytime due to non-conformance.
  • Students who work on campus are employed to perform duties that complement, not replace, full-time employees. The student’s first responsibility and priority is their academic success; with this in mind, students cannot work more than 10 hours per week.
  • All students will be terminated from their position for poor job performance, dishonest practices, breach of confidentiality, or failure to report to work.  If you are terminated for any reason this may affect your future employment at the University.
