The purpose of the Federal Work Study and Campus Employment Programs is to promote part-time employment of students. Only students awarded Federal Work-Study or Campus Employment are eligible to work on campus. It is up to each student to secure employment. Payment for Federal Work-Study or Campus Employment is currently $8.95/hour. Eligible students will be notified through Linfield e-mail of available positions or by logging into CAT CONNECT http://www.linfield.edu/portland/student-life/career-resources/jobs-pdx.html. Students need to contact the hiring supervisor and arrange a work schedule. Additionally, students must complete a W-4 form , an I-9 Eligibility form, Confidentiality Agreement and all mandatory training that can be found here, prior to beginning their work-study or campus employment.
Students will enter their hours worked on a time card which will be submitted by the department supervisor to the Accounting Office every month. Paychecks will be available in the Accounting Office on the tenth of every month. Earnings are not credited to a student’s account unless special arrangements have been made with the Accounting Office. Therefore, students should subtract the amount of the Work-Study awarded from their total financial aid package when determining the amount of aid that will directly credited to their account. For students interested in direct deposit please fill out direct deposit form and submit to the accounting office.
Student employment positions require regular and prompt attendance and proffesional work habits. Students are expected to notify their supervisors when they are unable to work scheduled hours. Failure to conform to normal work standards may result in termination.
