Student Employment


Student Employment 

Student employment is a part-time work program to earn money while you are in school. The hourly rate of pay is minimum wage and greater for some positions. 

Your earnings will never pay automatically toward your student account. You will receive a paycheck for hours worked either direct deposited or a paper check mailed to you.  All Federal and University student employees are paid bi-weekly.  Graduate Assistants are paid monthly. 

On-campus employment through any of these programs is not guaranteed. All student employees are required to perform their duties in a satisfactory manner.  They are to follow their work schedule diligently and they should be prompt and regular in attendance.  Departments arrange the job to accommodate students' class schedule.


Student and Graduate Assistantships employment is at will and may be terminated at any time without cause.
