Payment for students working Student Employment and Federal Work Study is biweekly and is not applied to their financial aid package.
When the department has a vacant student employment position available, the supervisor is required to submit a position description to the Office of Career Services by completing a Department Job Vacancy Form on the Career Services website or through a link provided on MySSU.
Once received, the Office of Career Services will provide a list of candidates matching the desired qualifications within five (5) working days. Once the decision has been made to hire a student, the department is required to notify the Office of Career Services immediately so the position can be removed.
Supervisors must be certain that students do not begin working until all Student Employment and Human Resource paperwork is completed.
The supervisor must complete the required Authorization to Hire or Change Notice, including account number and required signatures.
To ensure eligibility, the supervisor must then return this form to the Office of Career Services by fax to ext. 3551.
NOTE: It is very important that all employment paperwork be completed as required. The student will not be considered "employed" or paid until approvals and necessary forms are officially processed. Due to auditing purposes, departments are required to resubmit a new Authorization to Hire or Change Form to Human Resources at the beginning of each fiscal year.
