Student Employment Student Information



  • Due to the extremely high volume of I9s, we ask that you allow 3 business days for the processing of I9s completed in-person and 7 business days for the processing of mail-in I9s.
  • Students will receive an email when SEO receives and processes their I9.
  • Only contact SEO for an I9 update if you have not received an email at least 14 days AFTER the student submitted their documents.
  • I9 cards are not being distributed at this time! I9 dates will be provided to the student via email once their I9 process is complete.
  • Supervisors please request I9 information from your student employee before reaching out to SEO

Undergraduate students who need to complete the I9 process can do so with the two options below:

  1. Remote Processing – The student can take their completed I9 form along with original documents to a notary(download I9 packet). The notarized documents can be mailed to:

    Career & Professional Development-SEO

    P.O. Box 26170

    If you choose this option to complete your I9, please make sure that:
    • Page 1 of the I9 form; completed by the student
    • Page 2 of the I9 form; complete by the notary
    • A copy of your verification documents is attached

On-Campus Employment Requirements

  • Must be enrolled in 6 degree seeking credit hours
  • Must maintain a “student” status throughout the school year
  • Must abide by University GPA requirements

Federal Work Study

Through the Federal Work Study program, you can secure an on-campus job to help pay for your educational expenses (including tuition) and give you valuable work experience.

Federal Work Study is awarded through the Financial Aid Office based on financial need. Financial need is determined by the information you or your family supplies on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Priority is given to those who file their FASFA by December 1st. Federal Work Study is a grant based program; thus, when all money has been awarded, no more funds are available for the year.

As a Federal Work Study student employee you will be paid for the hours you work, not to exceed the full amount of your award for the school year.

Check Handshake daily for new opportunities.


You do not need a work-study award to work on campus. Hourly positions are available for students, in various departments. Hourly student employees are paid for the hours they work and there is no cap on the maximum amount they can earn in a semester.
