    Informal Hire Offer

    When a decision is made to hire a student, the supervisor can make an offer of employment by completing the appropriate hiring packet, which consists of the required forms. It is the supervisor’s responsibility to ensure forms are complete and mistake-free before submitting them to the Student Employment office for processing, which takes approximately 7-10 business days. Delays may occur if any paperwork has errors, is incomplete, or if there are issues with student eligibility or funding.

    Formal Offer and Timesheet Procedures

    Once a student is approved for hire, Student Employment will send a written approval e-mail with the employee’s hire date along with an attached timesheet. Supervisors may NOT request students work prior to official hire without written authorization from the Student Employment office.
    Supervisors may then request the student employee to begin working. Refer them to the Timesheet Procedures and the Student Payroll Calendar for information on due dates and submitting timesheets.
