Our Student Employment Office (SEO) manages the university's student employment programs. Our goal is to make on-campus employment opportunities fair and accessible to all qualified students. Money earned in the work programs is to be used for educational expenses - tuition, fees, housing, meal plans, books, supplies, and necessary travel expenses.

Last year, our SEO helped approximately 2,000 participants find employment. Students can choose from a multitude of diverse job opportunities, all offering comfortable work environments, flexibility in scheduling, and a competitive pay rate. Whether building on existing skills or developing new skill sets, students can enhance their resumes while earning money to defray their educational costs, all while working with our university's nationally recognized faculty and staff. The SEO also acts as a resource for off-campus opportunities (employers that are not affiliated with the university).

Required Employment Paperwork (posted October 4, 2023)

All new employees are required to fill out a New Hire packet and Federal Form I-9. Per federal regulations, we can not process Federal Form I-9 until you have accepted an official job offer through JobHawk. Section 1 of the I-9 needs to be completed by the first day of work and Section 2 must be completed within 3 business days of starting work.

Section 2 of the I-9 form must be completed in person. Students who need to have Section 2 of their I-9 processed are encouraged to visit our drop-in times in University Crossing (UCC), Room 450.

Make an appointment with Student Employment team for completion of Section 2 of the I-9 or to discuss other matters relevant to working on-campus.
