I received funding which includes hours for a Research Assistant; what do I need to do?
Within about a week of the Dean of Faculty and Research's email notfiying you that you are a recipient of funding you should receive another email from the Student Employment Office. (If you do not receive this email within the aforementioned time frame please contact SEO.) This email will provide the information necessary for you to complete either a Payroll Authorization Form (“green card”) or EPAF for any student hired as your research assistant and getting paid out of that specific fund. Green cards are available in the Student Employment Office or can be sent via inter-campus mail upon request. Only once the green card or EPAF has been submitted to, and processed by, SEO will the student receive access to timesheets in order to be paid. To determine if you student is eligible to work see Employing a MiddKid.
Please note that you will only receive one email from SEO when the funding is first granted. We ask that you keep these emails so that you have this information for subsequent academic years.
How do I create a new student position?
Complete the "New Student Job Request Form". You will receive an email once the position has been created.
How do I let students know that I'm hiring?
See "Using PeopleAdmin" to post your opening.
I've hired a student. Now what?
First, please remember that a student is only eligible to work if they have received their "blue card" at SEO.
For any student that is hired to work in an on-going capacity during the academic year please complete and submit either a "Green Card" or an "EPAF". SEO is in the process of rolling out a new process in BannerWeb called an Electronic Personnel Action Form ("EPAF") that gives supervisors the ability to hire or re-hire students electronically. At this time, not all departments have received training on this new process (if you're interested please contact SEO). If you haven't received the training yet please continue to submit Green Cards. Green cards are available at SEO.
For any student that is hired to work during the summer please complete (with the student) and submit a Summer Student Employment & Housing Agreement. This form can be found under Summer Employment on the left of this page.
For any student that is hired to work one time only (i.e.; DJ'ing at an event, driving a College van for a trip) please complete and submit a "Temp Card". Temp cards are available at SEO.
Is there a limit to the number of hours a student can work a week?
Yes, all Student Employees are limited to working no more than 20 hours per week in all on campus jobs during the academic year. The only exception is when there is a full week when school is not in session. Specifically; February recess, Spring recess, and full weeks of December recess. During these time periods only, students can work up to 40 hours per week.
