Student Employment

Many offices on campus hire student employees for between 5-10 hours of employment per week and you may hold more than one job on campus, up to a maximum of 20 hours per week in all jobs combined. Students who have a university work study job as part of their financial aid award have priority for on-campus employment. Approximately 400 students are employed on a part-time basis during the academic year.

All student jobs pay minimum wage. A complete set of payroll forms must be on file with the Business Office PRIOR to any work beginning.  

The required forms are:

  • USCIS I-9 and supporting documentation: Supporting Documents are listed on page three of the form and  students must present the original document(s). 
  • Federal Withholding Form
  • Ohio Tax Withholding Certificate
  • Direct Deposit Application
  • Student Payroll Authorization

These employment forms should be turned into the Business Office before your first day of work on campus. New students are able to complete and bring these forms with them for orientation. Please contact the Business Office at 419-448-2000 with any questions. 

Federal Work Study

The campus job award is the maximum amount the student may earn during the year. The awarded amount is based on the student’s need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Should students have any questions about their eligibility to work on-campus they should contact the Financial Aid Office.

Federal Work Study & Community Service

A portion of our work-study funding is used for community service. These jobs benefit both students on campus as well as individuals in the community. Our community service jobs are currently in Beeghly Library and Instructional Media Center as assistants. You must be awarded a “work study” job to be eligible for one of these positions.

Campus Employment & Career Development

Working part time can be a valuable opportunity to enhance your career development. Many general skills, organizational ability and the ability to work with other people are important in any professional job situation.

The job search process for an on-campus job is very similar to the search for full-time employment. Student employment can provide a chance to learn and apply effective job search techniques. Work experience can also be an important addition to your resume. For a summary of our Work Study Program and listing of campus jobs, please review our Federal Work Study Handbook.
